THE SCHEDULE.

AGREEMENT made this eleventh day of April, One thousand nine hundred and twenty-two Between the COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA (hereinafter called “the Commonwealth”) of the one part and the DOMINION OF NEW ZEALAND (hereinafter called “the Dominion”) of the other part:

Whereas with a view to the arrangement of more equitable trade relations between the Commonwealth and the Dominion, the Ministers of Customs for the said countries have agreed to recommend to their respective Parliaments Customs duties in accordance with the Schedule attached hereto:—

now therefore it is hereby agreed as follows:—

1.  The said Schedule shall come into force on a date to be proclaimed by the Governor-General of the Commonwealth and the Governor-General of the Dominion, after the Parliaments of both countries have signified their acceptance thereof, and shall (subject to the provisions of this Agreement) remain in force until six months’ notice of the termination thereof has been given by either party.

2.  The Commonwealth shall not impose any customs duty or increase the rate of any customs duty on any article entering the Commonwealth from the Dominion, and the Dominion shall not impose any customs duty or increase the rate of any


 

customs duty on any article entering the Dominion from the Commonwealth (whether such article is or is not specifically enumerated in the Schedule hereto, and whether such article is or is not dutiable at the date of this Agreement), except by mutual agreement, until after six months’ notice to the other party to this Agreement.

3.  Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to affect the right of the Commonwealth or of the Dominion to impose new duties upon any articles for the protection of any new industry established or proposed to be established in the Commonwealth or the Dominion as the case may be; provided that such new duties do not exceed the duties imposed on the importation of similar articles from the United Kingdom into the Commonwealth or the Dominion as the case may be.

4.  Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to affect the right of the Commonwealth or the Dominion to bring into force suspended or deferred duties, or to collect or impose dumping duties, or analogous special duties to meet abnormal trading conditions.

5.  Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed to affect the right of the Commonwealth to impose primage or other general duties, provided that such duties on goods imported from New Zealand do not exceed the duties imposed on similar goods imported from the United Kingdom.

6.  All goods enumerated in the Schedule hereto shall be liable to such primage duty, if any, upon entry into the Dominion, as shall for the time being be in force, provided that such duty does not exceed the primage duty on similar goods imported from the United Kingdom.

7.  Goods imported into the Commonwealth, and thereafter transhipped to the Dominion, which if they had been imported direct from the country of origin to the Dominion would have been entitled to be entered under the British Preferential Tariff in the Dominion, shall, upon production of a certificate from the Customs Department of the Commonwealth stating the country of origin of the goods and such other information as is required, be entitled to be entered under the British Preferential Tariff in the Dominion.

8.  Goods imported into the Dominion, and thereafter transhipped to the Commonwealth, which if they had been imported direct from the country of origin to the Commonwealth would have been entitled to be entered under the British Preferential Tariff in the Commonwealth, shall, upon production of a certificate from the Customs Department of the Dominion stating the country of origin of the goods and such other information as is required, be entitled to be entered under the British Preferential Tariff in the Commonwealth.

9.  The provisions of the last two preceding clauses of this Agreement shall operate from the first day of May One thousand nine hundred and twenty-two, notwithstanding that this Agreement may not at that date have been ratified by the Parliament of either country.

10.   No special rebate or bounty shall be granted by the Commonwealth or the Dominion in respect of the sugar contained in any goods exported from the Commonwealth or the Dominion, as the case may be, to the Dominion or the Commonwealth.
