HC Deb 16 June 1927 vol 207 c1178
58. Mr. SCURR

asked the Under-Secretary of State for India whether it is proposed to establish a Customs line at Virangam, in view of the fact that the Government of India loses over a crore of rupees every year in Customs duties because some of the Indian States, especially Nawanager, allow goods to be landed in their ports; and whether any arrangements for rebates exist with regard to such imported goods?


The Government of India propose to discuss with the States concerned the new situation arising from the loss of revenue to which the hon. Member refers, and in the circumstances any statement in this House is clearly undesirable.
