HC Deb 08 March 1920 vol 126 c883

asked the extent to which the Government has financially assisted the Argentine Meat Company, of Argentina; upon whose recommendations the subsidy was granted; and the amount of the subsidy and the conditions attached to it?


No financial assistance has been given to any Argentine Meat Company, but since August, 1915, the Board of Trade has leased works belonging to a British Company in Argentina and has thereby reaped profits which would otherwise have gone into private hands.
