HC Deb 08 February 1915 vol 69 c274W
Sir J. D. REES

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any representations have been made to the United States Government regarding the loss to British commercial interests in Mexico in the anarchy which has followed since General Huerta ceased, owing to the non-recognition of that Government, to be President; whether any leader, and, if so which leader, is now recognised by the United States Government as President; and whether His Majesty's Government recognises the same leader, or any leader, as President at the present time?


Several cases of damage and loss to British interests in Mexico have been brought to the notice of the United States Government since General Huerta's retirement. The answer to the last two parts of the hon. Member's question is in the negative.
