asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs how much in sterling per year is represented by frais de representation in the cases of the right hon. Member for Chelsea (Sir S. Hoare) and the hon. and learned Member for Bristol (Sir S. Cripps), respectively?
The Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs (Mr. Butler)
I can at present only reply to the first part of the right hon. Gentleman's Question. As I stated on 29th May, frais de representation will be at a rate appropriate to the mission concerned in present circumstances.
May I ask whether it will be possible to pay the right hon. Gentlemen in future according to results?
What does frais de representation mean?
It means expenses.
Why did not the right hon. and gallant Gentleman put it in the Question?
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he can yet say when our diplomatic representation by an Ambassador in Moscow will be resumed; and whether he will give an assurance that the Government is prepared to enter into fully normal relations with the Russian Government?
I hope to be able to give a reply on this subject to-morrow. As regards the second part of the Question, the answer is in the affirmative.
