§ Sir N. GRATTAN-DOYLE
asked the President of the Board of Trade the countries which discriminate against the shipping of other countries and in what way such discrimination is shown?
§ Mr. W. GRAHAM
I am not in a position to state what countries discriminate against shipping of countries other than Great Britain. The two countries which discriminate in important matters against British shipping are Portugal and Chile. Portugal charges lower dues to national than to British vessels and allows a 10 per cent. reduction of Customs duties on goods carried in national vessels. Chile allows a 50 per cent. rebate to national vessels in respect of certain consular and pilotage charges.
