HC Deb 13 May 1912 vol 38 cc766-7

asked whether, in view of the losses being sustained by stockbreeders in this country by the prohibition of British sheep from Argentine ports, His Majesty's Government will make friendly representations to the Argentine Government with the object of obtaining a relaxation in favour of the importation of pedigree stock certified by veterinary surgeons to be free from disease and to be drawn from flocks untainted by infection for a period of three years?


Communications have passed between His Majesty's Government and the Argentine Government. Each complains of the restrictions on importation imposed by the other, and there is therefore no object in making further representations under present circumstances.
