HC Deb 11 February 1930 vol 235 c249W

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he will publish a White Paper specifying for each Dominion and Colony the tariff duties chargeable upon British goods entering the Dominions and Colonies, and showing any preferences granted by such Dominions and Colonies to British as compared with foreign goods?


A statement of the kind asked for by the hon. and gallant Member, involving as it does a reprint of every Dominion and Colonial Customs Tariff in force, would take up a large volume or volumes, and would quickly become out of date owing to changes in tariffs which are constantly being made. These tariffs are at all times available for reference at the Department of Overseas Trade, and, having regard to the expense involved, I do not feel able to comply with this request.
