HC Deb 26 March 1895 vol 32 c168
MR. W. H. HOLLAND (Salford, N)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for India whether it is the intention of the Indian Government to give effect to the House of Commons' Resolution of July 1877 relating to Import Duties, namely, that they ought to be repealed without delay, so soon as the financial condition of India will permit?


The Indian Government, no doubt, regret the necessity for imposing a Duty upon Imports; but the state of the finances of India is not at present such as to encourage any hope that it can be dispensed with.
