asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to what extent British interests in Spain were affected by the recent strike in Bilbao and other parts of the Basque country; and what reports he has received from His Majesty's representatives in Spain.

From reports received from His Majesty's Chargé d'Affairs at Madrid it appears that three firms in which there are British interests were affected by the strike in the Bilbao district. None of these firms have appealed for assistance to His Majesty's Chargé d'Affairs or to His Majesty's Consul at Bilbao.
