asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs the last date upon which Her Majesty's Military Attaché at Mexico City visited Tegucigalpa and Guatemala; the duration of his stay in both capitals; and if he is satisfied that this officer can deal effectively with the military aspects and potentialities of the seven Republics to which he is accredited.

The former Military Attaché at Her Majesty's Embassy at Mexico City visited Guatemala from 3rd May to 8th May and the capital of Honduras from 9th May to 10th May of this year. His successor, who arrived at Mexico City on 28th May has been trying for some time to reach Guatemala City, but has not yet reported his arrival.

The arrangement by which this officer is appointed to seven Republics is normally satisfactory and must be accepted, given the need for economy in Government expenditure overseas.
