asked the Secretary of State for the Colonies what is the market value of palm kernels to-day at Lagos, Nigeria, and the percentage of export duty, excluding the differential duty upon kernels shipped to a foreign port?

The latest information which I possess is that in May the average price of palm kernels at Lagos was about £11 a ton. The export duty is £2 a ton; so the export duty was about 18 per cent. of the then average Lagos price.
