( by Private Notice)
asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether a number of English employés of the Cortez Oil Company, in Mexico, have been captured by brigands, and if he can give any information to the House on the subject.
I have not yet received any confirmation of the reports on this subject which have appeared in the Press. A telegram of inquiry has been sent to His Majesty's representative at Mexico City, and I will inform the hon. Member as soon as possible of the reply.
