HC Deb 18 April 1901 vol 92 c607
MR. MACARTNEY (Antrim, S.)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the fact that the Argentine Republic prohibits the importation of live stock from the United Kingdom owing to the existence of foot-and-mouth disease in Great Britain, and that Ireland is now and has been for over sixteen years free from this disease, and that the prohibition is productive of loss to Irish stock breeders, the Secretary of State will endeavour to obtain a relaxation of the prohibition in favour of stock bred in and exported from Ireland.


Representations to this effect have recently been made more than once, but I am afraid without success.
