HC Deb 04 June 1924 vol 174 cc1216-7

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any additional grant has been received from the Government of Peru in compensation to the British emigrants who returned from Peru in distressed circumstances, owing to the failure of the Peruvian Government to carry out its obligations in the terms of its advertisements in 1920?

Mr. LUNN (Secretary Overseas Trade Department)

No, Sir, but I am informed that the Peruvian Government have now promised a remittance of £1,200 in addition to the sums already received in final settlement of this claim, and His Majesty's Minister at Lima has been instructed by telegram to press for early payment.
