Liberal

Mr. McCann:

No. The point is this: Is the value at which they are exported the fair and reasonable value, comparable to the price at which they have been selling in their own country, under comparable conditions? But if at the end of a season they want to dump 10,000 manufactured articles into this country, or so many thousand yards of end of the season or end of the line, we say, "No, you cannot do that unless you invoice them at a value based on the weighted index of what you have been selling them for in your own country for the last six months, prior to this export".
