§ SIR GEORGE DOUGHTY
To ask the President of the Board of Trade if he can state the value of the goods imported from the United Kingdom into Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa in a recent year which are not subject to import duties under the tariffs at present in force, but which would have been dutiable if imported from a foreign country.
(Answered by Mr. Lloyd-George). The value of the imports into Canada, New Zealand, and South Africa from the United Kingdom of articles which, under the tariffs at present in force, are not subject to duty, but are dutiable if imported from a foreign country, in the latest years for which the information is available in each case were as follows: —
£ Canada (year ended 30th June 1906) 241,000 New Zealand (1905) 449,000 South Africa Customs Union (1906) 3,655,000† See page 1215.1402 The existing Canadian tariff did not come into operation until November last, but the figures given represent the value of the imports which would not have been dutiable if that tariff had been in force during the year 1905–6.
