§ 36. Sir N. GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Foreign Office took steps to see that the interests of British bondholders of the defaulted obligations of the Mexican Government were in the recent arrangement represented by British nationals, in view of the fact that the International Committee on Mexican Debt has since 1922 been self-constituted and predominantly representative of American interests?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Mr. Eden)
The agreement concluded between the Mexican Government and the International Committee of Bankers on the 22nd of December last was only signed after all sections of the committee, in- 670 cluding the section in London which represents the British bondholders, had been consulted and had signified their approval. His Majesty's Government have throughout been in close touch with the British interests concerned, and in the circumstances no action was necessary.
