§ 1. Sir CYRIL COBB
asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether he is aware that on 11th March the Argentine Government is conferring in Buenos Ayres with meat exporters about the lapsing or renewal of the Anglo-Argentine Trade Agreement; and will he, to prevent misunderstanding, request the Argentine Government to inform meat exporters that British public opinion is unfavourable to the admission of Argentine beef into Britain until after the grievances of the Anglo-Argentine railways have been dealt with in a manner satisfactory to British investors?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for FOREIGN AFFAIRS (Viscount Cranborne)
I have no official information that such a conference is to be held. As regards the question of the continuance of the trade agreement, I have nothing to add to the reply returned by my right hon. Friend the President of the Board of Trade to a question by my hon. Friend the Member for South Croydon (Mr. H. G. Williams) on 6th February.
§ Sir ARTHUR MICHAEL SAMUEL
Is the Noble Lord aware that until the confidence of British investors is re-established in Argentine good faith, the export of British railway materials for 2104 developing the Argentine railways will be seriously diminished?
