HC Deb 27 June 1921 vol 143 c1836W

asked the Prime Minister if his attention has been called to the report of the directors of the Mexican Railway Company in which, after personal visits to Mexico, they report that the country is now tranquil and the Government doing its best to meet fairly all the claims upon it; and if, under these conditions, the Government of that country will be recognised and strengthened by the presence of a Minister from this country?


My attention has been drawn to the report in question, and I have read with great interest this testimony to the intentions of the Mexican Government. Any definite steps which may be taken by that Government to carry out their policy for the settlement of foreign claims would be most welcome to His Majesty's Government, but, as I have previously stated, His Majesty's Government consider that recognition would, for the moment, be premature.
