§ 1. Sir NICHOLAS GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the hardship suffered by British subjects who have equipped and are maintaining the railway services in Argentina, he will again request redress of the disabilities which the Argentine authorities continue to impose upon the operations of those railways?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Sir Samuel Hoare)
I would refer my hon. Friend to the reply given to my hon. Friend the Member for Aberdeen, North (Mr. Burnett) on 28th May, from which he will see that an award by the President of the Argentine Republic on certain questions at issue as regards the operation of the Argentine railways is expected to be given in the very near future. In the meantime, I can only assure my hon. Friend that the matter is being carefully watched.
§ Sir N. GRATTAN-DOYLE
In view of the fact that this matter has been raised so often, can nothing be done to facilitate a settlement?
§ Sir S. HOARE
I think it would be best to await the President's decision. I can again assure my hon. Friend that we are watching the matter very carefully.
