The hon. gentleman's explanation is very ingenious, but there is a little bit of an anachronism about it. The' interview took place a few years ago and after the tariff of 1S9T. The tariff was revised in 1897, and I understand the Minister of Inland Revenue to say that that contract was for five years and has not yet expired. Therefore, it cannot date further back than 189S. Therefore, it cannot be earlier than 189S.
