HC Deb 07 April 1925 vol 182 cc2047-8W

asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Overseas Trade Department whether he is aware that there is a considerable delay in passing goods through the customs in the Argentine; that this delay amounts to from four to five months after the goods have arrived; that Sheffield manufacturers have been instructed not to send goods by parcel post owing to the serious delay in getting the parcels through the customs; and whether steps can be taken to obviate this difficulty?


I have received representations with regard to parcels post traffic, and His Majesty's Minister at Buenos Aires is being requested by the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs to look into it and report.
