asked the President of the Board of Trade the rate of duty payable on imported fertilisers for agriculture; and what purpose this duty serves.

Fertilisers cover a wide range of products and the duties on the various descriptions are set out in the Customs and Excise Tariff. I am writing to the hon. Member to give him details. About 90 per cent. by value of these materials is at present admitted free of duty from all sources.
