Mr TUDOR - The answer to the honorable member's question is: -

The price paid for household sugar in New Zealand is £20 per ton.

In Australia - New South Wales, £21 per ton; Victoria, £21 2s. 8d. per ton; Queensland, £23 per ton; South Australia, £22 per. ton; and in United Kingdom, £27 10s. per ton (according to press cable 8th May, 1915). There is no duty on sugar imported into New Zealand!

Under Commonwealth Tariff, duty on cane sugar is £6 per ton.

In United Kingdom duties are dependent on character of sugar, and range from 16s. 8d. per ton to 36s. 8d. per ton. Sugars like Australian cane sugar with average 98.91 polarization would come within the 36s. 8d. per ton charge.
