In the periods named in the question it would be difficult to find many countries in which some modification of Customs Duties have not taken place. Such changes affect the products of Great Britain in common with those of other countries, and I am not aware of any instance in which there has been an all round increase of duties directed specially against this country. It is impossible to summarise these changes within the limits of an answer to a question, and I will therefore send my hon. Friend a statement showing the principal Tariff revisions which have taken place in the two periods named.
