HC Deb 01 June 1949 vol 465 cc154-5W
27. Mr. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the recent developments concerning the Anglo-Argentine Trade Agreement, he will now make a statement concerning his future action for compensation for the British shareholders in the Buenos Aires Tramways Corporation.

Mr. Mayhew

As the hon. Member is aware, the commercial negotiations between this country and the Argentine Republic are not completed yet although agreement in principle has been reached. At a meeting yesterday of the Argentine National Economic Council, His Majesty's Ambassador was assured by the competent Minister that they would make arrangements for direct discussions on this subject with representatives of the British companies concerned.
