asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he will instruct the Consular Service in the Argentine Republic to furnish a report in respect to the financial position of the British-owned Argentine railways, in which £250,000,000 of. British capital is invested; and whether he will arrange for a copy of that report to be placed in the Library?
The companies concerned are all registered in this country, and the material necessary for a full understanding of their financial position is already available in London. In the circumstances I do not propose to adopt my hon. Friend's suggestion.
