asked whether the British Vice-Consulate at Haifa is to be raised to the level recently attained by the Consulates of other Powers at that place?

As at present advised I see no reason for altering the present status of the post.

Have not other Powers been differently advised? Have they not raised the status?

We have not got information that they have appointed a salaried Consul to this post. In any case I understand the fees received at this post were only £30 last year, which does not justify a salaried appointment.
