HC Deb 03 August 1925 vol 187 c964W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he is now in a position to state whether a British consul has been appointed in the Welsh colony in the Chubut Valley, Argentine, as suggested in the Report received by the Foreign Office in 1923; and, if not, will he give immediate consideration to the subject?


His Majesty's Minister at Buenos Aires has reported that the gentleman to whom it was proposed to offer the appointment has no immediate intention of returning to Patagonia, and he has suggested that the post should be left vacant as he is unable to suggest any other suitable candidate.
