HC Deb 16 November 1914 vol 68 c222

asked the Secretary for Foreign Affairs whether any agreement has been arrived at between the United States of America and the Carranza Government in Mexico for the evacuation of Vera Cruz; and has he any information as to the ability and intention of the new authorities in Mexico to establish democratic rule, abolish military dictatorships, and suppress the operations of bandit forces?


I understand that an arrangement has been come to between General Carranza's Government and the United States Government for the evacuation of Vera Cruz. The answer to the second part of the question is in the negative.
