June 4, 1954 (22nd Parliament, 1st Session)


James Joseph McCann (Minister of National Revenue)


Mr. McCann:

I am unable to give the exact number of reports that have been received but it must have been very considerable because I have given the answer with respect to where action has been taken and I have given information as to the great number of cases that are under investigation at the present time. This does not mean that delivery of these goods is not made to the importer or buyer. We reserve the right to reconsider and reassess the amount of duty that shall be paid. That means that with respect to these items and commodities under investigation the final determination has not been made of the amount that shall be paid on the invoices because the invoices may be reappraised and corrected.
