§ MR. WATT (Glasgow, Camlachie)
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade whether he can state approximately the amount of mineral waters imported into the United Kingdom during the last financial year; and whether any duty is at present levied thereon?
§ *THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE (Sir M. HICKS BEACH,) Bristol, W.
Mineral waters imported into the United Kingdom are included in the Trade Accounts, with other goods unenumerated, and the Customs inform me that they are unable to estimate the amount. There is no duty on the importation of mineral waters.
