Mr. BOWER MAN
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether any reply has been received to the further communication addressed to the Argentine Government regarding the desire to export to the United Kingdom live cattle for slaughter, in consequence of the freedom of that country from foot-and-mouth disease; and, if so, will he state the nature of such reply?
§ The TREASURER of the HOUSEHOLD (Sir E. Strachey)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question, and to say that no reply has as yet been received to the further communication mentioned.
§ Sir E. STRACHEY
My Noble Friend has said that the Board will not let in these cattle until they are satisfied, and they are not satisfied at the present time.
