Not illustrated. 1891 edition. Excerpt: ...Cumberland?--It will not. 12581. If the ll d. is adopted, it will be less than what is mentioned in the agreement?--It will be in reduction of the agreement. 12582. Let 12582. Let me ask you this, supposing it be as the Honourable Member for Aberdeen suggests, that there are certain of those rates in the, wh_ite paper which are below the 11 d., could you raise those rates so as to recoup yourselffor the serious loss in the lVest Cumberland pig-iron trafiic?--I do not think there is a rate in this No. 13 return which could be practically raised. 12583. That illustrates what you mean, does it not, about the question of average; if you take a number of small rates that are low, although you may have a mazimum in advance of that, unless you can advance the rate to the maximum, you cannot recpup yourself for what you lose?That is so. 12584. The whole question, therefore, depends upon whether, having established rates which are below the Board of Trade maximum according to the white scale, you could possibly interfere with trade so as to raise these rates against these traders here, in order to give the West Climberland traders the advantage of less rates?---lf the rate is made as the Board of Trade propose, we shall not be able to impose those rates, and VVest Cumberland will come down. 12585. The West Cumberland rate will come down, you cannot advance those rates to the maximum?--No. 12586. That is the way in which the loss occurs, is it not?--Yes. 12587. If you could equalise your rates, raising those that are below the maximum to the maximum, pao tanto you would be compensated for bringing some down which are above the maximum?--That is so. Mr. FINDLAY. Earl of Ca/uperdown---continued. object of the Lancashire and Cheshire conference more
