§ 24. Mr. Lewis
asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will give an estimate of how much British imports from Argentina will be reduced in price, resultant upon the decision of that country to devalue their currency; and by how much our meat imports are liable to be reduced in price in the coming year.
§ Mr. P. Thorneycroft
The information available about the policies of the new Government of Argentina does not enable any estimates to be made. A change in the exchange system seems to be only part of what is proposed.
§ Mr. Thorneycroft
I think that all these questions are rather hypothetical until we get clearer information as to what is taking place.
