§ 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?
Mr. A. HENDERSON
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 942 they are received, I shall be happy to inform the hon. Member of the terms of the statement.
When is the right hon. Gentleman expecting to have the information—before we adjourn for Christmas or after?
