HC Deb 16 December 1929 vol 233 cc941-2
8. Mr. A. M. SAMUEL

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he will request His Majesty's Minister in Mexico to inquire whether the president elect of Mexico has made a statement, and, if so, its terms, with regard to the default of obligations towards holders of Mexican Government securities?


I have observed in the Press a statement that the president-elect of Mexico referred, in the course of an interview at the end of last month with the representative of a foreign newspaper, to his plans with regard to the foreign indebtedness of Mexico. The remarks made by the president-elect are being reported by despatch from His Majesty's Charge d'Affaires at Mexico City. As soon as they are received, I shall be happy to inform the hon. Member of the terms of the statement.


I will put a question down later on.

Commander WILLIAMS

When is the right hon. Gentleman expecting to have the information—before we adjourn for Christmas or after?


I cannot say when the despatch will arrive.
