2. Mr. F. HALL (Dulwich)
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if arrangements have been made with the United States Government for Governments whose nationals are affected by the present position of affairs in Mexico to take steps in connection with any aggression upon oil properties and mining rights 903 in Mexico; and if he will consider the practicability of coming to a similar understanding as regards personal injury to British subjects?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY Of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Acland)
In reply to the first part of the hon. Member's question, I would refer him to the notes exchanged between His Majesty's Government and the United States Government, laid before Parliament in Cd. 7463. As regards personal injury to British subjects, I do not consider that a similar understanding with the United States Government would be practicable. Each individual case in which personal injury occurs must be considered on its merits.
