HC Deb 04 March 1925 vol 181 c446W

asked the Postmaster-General whether he is aware that the Canadian Government charge duty on postcards and circulars sent from the Mother Country to Canada; whether the Post Office will warn English business men that such duty will be required before the cards are delivered and collect the duty from them; and whether he can take any steps to secure that the Mother Country shall be treated on similar terms to those in which other nations treat Great Britain in the matter of advertising matter posted abroad?


Particulars are given in the Post Office Guide of the Customs duty charged by Canada on advertising matter received by post from Great Britain and other countries and of the method by which it can be prepaid. The question of the articles included in the Customs Tariff of a Dominion is, of course, a matter for that Dominion.
