§ 30. Mr. James Johnson
asked the Secretary of State for Commonwealth Affairs if he is aware that 30 campers from Guatemala, including President Julio César Méndez, have settled upon Hunting Cay Island, an offshore island of British Honduras; and whether he will give instructions to the Governor that these invaders be expelled.
§ Mr. Whitlock
The Governor has reported that the President of Guatemala and his party arrived at Hunting Cay on 22nd November and left on 25th November. The visit was, I understand, a recreational one but Her Majesty's Government greatly regret that it should have been made without the usual formalities being observed. A protest making our position clear has been conveyed to the Government of Guatemala.
