HC Deb 02 April 1903 vol 120 c910
MR. LAMBERT (Devonshire, South Molton)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can give any information as to the preferential tariff proposed by the Bloemfontein Conference to be given to British goods imported into South Africa.


I am not in a position to say more at present than that the draft Convention for a South African Customs Union embodies a tariff giving preferential rates to the Mother Country.
