asked the Under- Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether the Mexican Government has formally ratified the agreement come to in New York recognising their external debt obligations; and, if so, whether he can give details and particulars of the proposals?

Mr. HARMSWORTH:

My latest information is that on 30th June the agreement was still under consideration by the Mexican Government. I have not yet heard of its ratification.

Has my hon. Friend taken any steps to ascertain what are the details of this particular proposal, as asked in the latter part of the question?

Mr. HARMSWORTH:

I stated yesterday that we would make inquiries. This is a private Committee and it is not amenable to the jurisdiction of the British Government.

No; but I want to ask the hon. Gentleman whether they have done so—whether they have made the inquiries?

Mr. HARMSWORTH:

I will look into that.
