§ Mr. LONSDALE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if the state of affairs in Mexico is engaging his attention; and whether he can make any statement as to the protection of British subjects and interests in that country in the event of disturbances arising?
Mr. McKINNON WOOD
The answer to the first part of the hon. Member's ques- 1840 tion is in the affirmative. I have no reason to suppose that British subjects and interests are in danger or, according to present information, to doubt the ability of the Mexican Government to protect British subjects and interests in Mexico, should they be endangered.
§ Mr. NORTON-GRIFFITHS
May I ask if the newspaper reports appearing with reference to Mexico are exaggerated?
