§ 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.
