§ 1. Lieutenant-Colonel Sir S. HOARE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what progress has been made with reference to the reform of the Consular Service?
§ Sir A. STEEL-MAITLAND (Department of Overseas Trade)
A general scheme has now been completed for an increased number of salaried Consular posts, and a revised scale of salaries for Consular officers of all grades has been drawn up. These proposals are about to be submitted for sanction, and it is hoped may shortly be put into force.
