The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 60

Customs Tariff

Customs Tariff.

This subject was carefully considered in the early part of the year, in conjunction with a report by the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce, and a full report dealing with the anomalies of the Tariff of 1882 was submitted to the Government. A new Tariff has just been laid before Parliament by the Colonial Treasurer; but, as it considerably increases the Customs Duties and the number of dutiable articles, partly with the excuse of protecting colonial manufacturers, the Chamber unanimously expressed their disapproval of it, and resolved that in their opinion a Customs tariff should be for fiscal purposes only.
