HC Deb 26 January 1937 vol 319 cc741-2
20. Mr. Emmott

asked the Secretary of State for Dominion Affairs whether, in view of the fact that the cattle exports from Swaziland to the Union of South Africa represent more than 40 per cent. of the total exports from the territory to the Union, and in view of the impediment to the trade of Swaziland constituted by the present weight embargo on Swaziland cattle entering the Johannesburg market, he will make representations to the Union Government with a view to obtaining a reduction of this burden?

Mr. M. MacDonald

This matter has been discussed with the Union authorities on various occasions, but they have not hitherto seen their way to modify the present restrictions.
