§ SIR EDGAR VINCENT
I beg to ask the President of the Board of Trade if he can state the average duties† See (4) Debates, cxxiii, 948.71 calculated on an ad valorem basis levied in the different foreign countries and in our colonies on the larger classes of British exports; and, if the information is not at his disposal, whether he will obtain it.
§ MR. BONAR LAW
The information asked for is not at present available, and its preparation presents great difficulties owing to the different classifications adopted in the tariffs of different countries. The matter, however, is being looked into.
