§ 15. Sir WALDRON SMITHERS
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the attention of His Majesty's Government has been drawn to the action taken by the Mexican Government in connection with the affairs of the Mexican Eagle Oil Company; and whether action will be taken to see that the interests of British shareholders are protected?
§ Sir W. SMITHERS
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider the possibility of asking other Governments to co-operate with His Majesty's Government in making a protest to the Mexican Government to stop this kind of blackmail—[HON. MEMBERS: "Order!"]. It is quite true. Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that unless some drastic action is taken shareholders in concerns in other countries will cease to be safe?
