HC Deb 30 March 1922 vol 152 cc1579-80W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he is aware that there is a great demand in Mexico for British goods; if his Department contemplates taking any steps to assist in the satisfying of this demand; and whether he will consider the desirability of investigating and reporting on the conditions of trading with that country, which might be of value to British traders whose goods are suitable for Mexican trade?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the replies which I gave to the hon. Members for Farnham (Mr. A. M. Samuel) and Wednesbury (Mr. A. Short) on the 27th March, of which I am sending him copies. In addition to the circulation of special information received as to trade openings, an annual report on economic and financial coditions in Mexico is made by His Majesty's Consul-General and published as a Stationery Office publication.
