HC Deb 05 February 1951 vol 483 c160W
50. Sir H. Williams

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs on what principle it is decided that the envoys abroad of this country should be Ambassadors or Ministers respectively.

Mr. Younger

There is no fixed principle. The status of His Majesty's representatives abroad and of the representatives of foreign States accredited to His Majesty in this country is a matter for mutual agreement between His Majesty's Government and the Government of the country concerned.
