HC Deb 25 June 1902 vol 110 c4

To ask the Secretary of State for India whether the revenue derived from the import duties on goods entering India, imposed by the Government in 1894, is participated in by the Native States, or whether it is wholly absorbed by British India.

(Answer.) The whole of the proceeds of the Customs duties levied by the Government of India are paid, like those of the other taxes, into the Treasury of that Government, and not into that of any other Government or State.—(India Office.)
