§ 5. Captain PETER MACDONALD
asked the Secretary of State for India whether his attention has been called to the fact that salt exported to India from this country by the Salt Union Company is classified in India for tariff purposes as foreign; and on what grounds this decision has been reached?
§ Mr. BUTLER
The duty on salt imported into India consists of a duty equal to the excise duty plus an additional duty levied under the Salt (Additional Import Duty) Act, 1931. The latter duty is levied on all salt not produced in India.
