HC Deb 06 March 1922 vol 151 c836
41. Mr. L. MALONE

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the important oil interests operating in Mexico have now reached an agreement and that peaceful conditions now prevail throughout that country: and, if so, why His Majesty's Government do not recognise the present Mexican Government?


There are other interests in Mexico besides those of the oil companies, and I am not at present satisfied that His Majesty's Government would be justified in encouraging the extension of such interests by British investors which would result from the recognition of the Mexican Government.
