HC Deb 14 November 1928 vol 222 cc861-2
13. Mr. LOOKER

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will request His Majesty's representative in Mexico to report on the reasons for the continued default of the Mexican Government in respect of the agreement with British pre-War investors in Mexican Government securities?


No, Sir. Reports on the subject have already been received from His Majesty's representative in Mexico, who is fully aware of the desire of His Majesty's Government to be kept informed on this question.


Are His Majesty's Government taking any steps to protect the interests of British investors as regards these loans, and particularly any steps to warn the British investing public against the danger of investing in Mexican securities?


Our representative in Mexico is always doing his hest to watch British interests, but I would remind my hon. Friend that it has been very difficult owing to the fact that during the last 13 or 14 years there has been a great deal of civil war in the country.
