Alert me about debates like this

Mr. L. MALONE:

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he has received particulars of a secret agreement recently arrived at by the various oil interests in Mexico; whether this agreement was approved by His Majesty's Government; and whether it is now proposed to recognise fully the present Mexican Government?

Various reports have reached me with regard to this agreement, but I have no definite particulars on the subject. The reply to the second and third parts of the question is in the negative.

Mr. MALONE:

Is it not the duty of this Department to know about these agreements, and will the hon. Gentleman make inquiries?

Yes, I will make inquiries, and perhaps the hon. Gentleman will be able to assist me in the matter.
