The Curie temperature of the itinerant ferromagnets TiBe2-xCux was found to decrease linearly with pressure up to 20 kbar. No sign of superconductivity was detected in TiBe2-x Cux and ZrZn1.9 up to 90 kbar and down to 1.2K. The results are discussed in terms of the model recently suggested by Enz and Matthias concerning the occurence of magnetism and p-state superconductivity in these compounds.
