§ Mr. A. T. DAVIES
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what direct British representation there is in Mexico for the furtherance of British trade; what recent effort has been made to encourage British trade in the Mexican market; and whether it is proposed at an early date to appoint British trade representatives with a view to developing and increasing the mutual trading between these two countries?
§ Mr. PONSONBY
There is a British Consul-General at Mexico City, and a number of British Consular officers in different parts of the country. It had been under contemplation to strengthen the British commercial representation in Mexico, but the recent unsettled state of affairs in Mexico arising out of the revolution has made it difficult to encourage British trade. In reply to the third part of the question, I am unable at present to make any statement as to future arrangements in the country.
