Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs

The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs is a junior position in the British government since 1782, subordinate to the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs and from 1945 also to the Minister of State for Foreign Affairs. When the Foreign Office merged with the Commonwealth Office in 1968 the post was renamed Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs. Notable holders of the office include Granville Leveson-Gower, 2nd Earl Granville, John Wodehouse, 1st Earl of Kimberley, Edward Grey, 1st Viscount Grey of Fallodon, George Curzon, 1st Marquess Curzon of Kedleston and Anthony Eden. The post is not to be confused with the Permanent Under-Secretary at the Foreign Office.
