HC Deb 20 March 1930 vol 236 cc2125-6W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies the total value of exported coffee from Tanganyika during the 12th months ended to the last convenient date; and the percentage of the native-grown coffee that was exported during the same period?


The latest year for which full figures are available is 1928, in which coffee to the value of £739,657 was exported. No exact figures are available as to the amount of native-grown coffee exported, but this formed approximately three-quarters of the total export by weight.

and Excise Ordinance, 1929. The Customs and Excise Duties Ordinance as it appears in the Revised Edition of the Ordinances of 1924 gives the British Preferential rate for potable unenumerated spirits at $4 per proof gallon.
