§ 116. Mr. Grimond
asked the Secretary for Overseas Trade, as representing the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster, what additions to the prices of fertilisers are due to tariffs.
§ Mr. Hopkinson
The only significant imports of finished fertilisers subject to import duty are superphosphates and basic slag. On the basis of probable consumption of fertilisers this season (1st July, 1951-30th June, 1952) it is estimated that about 2 per cent. of the present statutory maximum prices of superphosphates and basic slag, and well below 1 per cent. of the price of compound fertilisers are due to tariffs.
