HC Deb 18 March 1935 vol 299 c837W

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs what, according to his latest information, is the number of British subjects in Buenos Aires, including suburbs, and the total number in Argentina?


Exact figures of the number of British subjects resident in Argentina are only ascertainable from the Argentine census, the last of which was taken in 1914 and gave a total figure of 28,300 British subjects. These figures do not, however, include persons of dual nationality and with this addition His Majesty's Ambassador at Buenos Aires has recently estimated that the number of British subjects in Argentina amounts to a figure between 55,000 and 60,000, of whom 30,000 may be resident in Buenos Aires.
