HC Deb 01 February 1960 vol 616 c88W
67. Mr. Teeling

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, in view of the Argentine courts not having given judgment before the end of 1959 in the appeal of the Anglo-Argentine Tramways Company, as forecast, what information he has received as to the reasons for the delay; and what steps Her Majesty's Government will take to find out the present position of the British claimants for compensation.

Mr. R. Allan

I am told that the Argentine judge who was hearing this case has been given leave of absence to deal with urgent personal matters. He is expected to resume his duties in March. Her Majesty's Government have continued to make it clear to the Argentine Government the importance which they attach to an early settlement.
