asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs if he will use his good offices with the President of Portugal on the occasion of his visit to the United Kingdom to make prompt, adequate and effective compensation to those British citizens whose property in Portugal has been summarily expropriated.
My right bon. Friend discussed the matter with the former Portuguese Foreign Minister when he visited this country last June. I hope it will be settled soon. Until it is, it will continue to be raised with the Portuguese Government whenever appropriate.
