asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs when an ambassador to Spain will be appointed.
I have nothing to add to my reply to similar Questions on 13th November.
Cannot the Under-Secretary say when the date when this appointment will be made, after all these years?
There are some administrative considerations and it is necessary to seek the agreement of the Spanish Government. This takes a certain amount of time, but there is no undue delay.
Will the Government demand that before sending an ambassador to Spain, the rights of the Protestant minority should be restored—
The hon. Member is going beyond the Question on the Order Paper.
—as this was one of the reasons why our ambassador was originally withdrawn?
