HC Deb 15 March 1922 vol 151 c2209W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he is aware that British firms in the Argentine are again appointing their pre-War German agents, and that it is the expressed intention of German merchants in Argentina to work as much as possible for German account as soon as they can rely on regular supplies; and whether, under these circumstances, he will issue a warning to those British traders who think that German agents or representatives will build up a permanent British connection?


My attention has not been called to any cases in which British firms have reappointed their pre-War German agents in the Argentine. I shall be glad to receive any information which my hon. Friend can supply to me on the subject.
