HC Deb 17 April 1913 vol 51 c2137W

asked the Secretary to the Treasury the amount of duty received from imported dates, cherries, candied peel, ginger, and canned fruits?


Statement of the net amount of duty received from the undermentioned imported articles in the calendar year 1912, the latest years for which figures are available:—

Articles. Net Amount of Duty.
Cherries, drained £1,177
Candied or drained peel 656
Ginger, preserved in sugar or syrup 2,878
Canned and bottled fruits preserved in syrup (other than fruits liable to duty as such) 6,410
I fear it is not possible to give a separate figure for dates, which are only liable to duty when preserved in sugar or syrup.
