HC Deb 13 March 1924 vol 170 c2548

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer the number and value of motor-cars and motor-car parts imported from Canada during the years 1921, 1922, and 1923; and the approximate amount of duty collected on such imports?


The answer to this question involves a tabular statement of figures which, with the hon. Member's permission, I will circulate in the OFFICIAL REPORT.

Following is the statement:

during each of the years 1921, 1922, and 1923:

Value. Amount of duty.
£ £
1921 65,537 21,837
1922 97,750 32,578
1923* 156,019 52,000
* As from 1st April, 1923, the figures relate to Great Britain and Northern Ireland only.
