§ 402. “Impose Duties of Customs.”

The power so given to the Parliament of Western Australia is a power to supplement the customs revenue collected in that State upon imports from abroad by a second tariff on goods “passing into that State” from the other States. Such duties, like other customs duties, are to be collected by the Commonwealth, and will, under the provisions of sec. 93, be credited to the State of Western Australia, and so go to increase, by the whole amount of such duties, the share of the surplus payable to Western Australia.
