HC Deb 01 June 1916 vol 82 c2915

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?


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.
