HC Deb 15 July 1929 vol 230 cc46-7W
Commander BELLAIRS

asked the First Lord of the Admiralty, in view of the importance of the British Empire Trade Fair in Buenos Aires in 1930, whether he will arrange for visits to be paid to the Argentine by battle-cruisers and cruisers during the progress of the exhibition?


A decision to send any of His Majesty's ships to the Argentine during the progress of the exhibition at Buenos Aires in 1930–1931 must depend upon the wishes of the Argentine Government, and the extent to which His Majesty's Ships of the appropriate type can be made available. The Admiralty are aware of the importance attached to this exhibition, and the hon. and gallant Member may rest assured of sympathetic consideration being given to any representation that His Majesty's Navy should participate.
