HC Deb 26 July 1937 vol 326 c2682W
Sir F. Sanderson

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will ask His Majesty's Minister in Mexico City to approach the Mexican Government with a view to speeding up the negotiations, which have been proceeding for some considerable time past, for a settlement of the Mexican Government's external pre-War debt, due to British holders, in view of the great prosperity which Mexico is to-day enjoying?

Mr. Eden

His Majesty's Government are naturally anxious that these negotiations should reach a speedy and satisfactory conclusion. I have not, however, received any request for assistance from the recognised representatives of the British bondholders.
