HC Deb 14 October 1908 vol 194 c298

I beg to ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies whether the abolition of the caravan tax in Northern Nigeria has been counter-balanced yet by the anticipated increase in land revenue in that Colony.


Actual figures are not available, but the Governor estimates that the land revenue will this year produce £41,000 more than in 1906–07, when the caravan tolls were abolished. The tolls were then bringing in about £33,000 a year.
