§ 7. Sir OWEN PHILIPPS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether His Majesty's Vice-Consul at San Juan, Porto Rico, is a British subject; whether all of the Vice-Consuls in the island are British subjects; and whether he has been informed by them that several British insurance companies are represented in Porto Rico by German firms?
§ Mr. CHAMBERLAIN
The answer to the first part of the question is in the affirmative. Three of the Vice-Consuls in Cuba are British subjects; the other three are American citizens. There is no record of any German firm acting as agent for a British insurance company. I shall be obliged if my hon. Friend will furnish me with any information which he may possess on the subject.
