§ 69. Mr. Douģlas Marshall
asked the Chancellor of the. Exchequer whether the agreement recently concluded between the International Bankers Committee and the Mexican Government concerning Mexican railway bonds, was negotiated with the full knowledge and approval of His Majesty's Government, and, in view of the fact that this agreement was criticised by the Council of Foreign Bondholders as inadequate for the British bondholders, what steps he proposes to take to safeguard their interests.
§ Mr. Dalton
The answer to the first part of the Question is in the negative. I am considering whether there is any' action which I can usefully take in this case.
§ Mr. Gallacher
Is not the Chancellor of the Exchequer aware that if the bondholders get anything they will get too much?
