    At the Commonwealth Relations Offices, London, Nov 2, the 40-years old Duke of Devonshire, Britain's new Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Commonwealth Relations, met the press for the first time since his Ministerial appointment - along with 14 others - was announced by Premier Macmillan Oct 28.

    A nephew of Lady Macmillan, the Duke succeeds Mr. R.H.M. Thompson, who has been elevated to Parliamentary Secretary at the Ministry of Works.
