Resolved, That the General Synod of the Church of England in Canada, having learned that it is proposed to place a duty on "Books, Bibles, Prayer Books, Psalm Books and Hymn Books, religious tracts and Sunday School Lesson Pictures" which are now free under all conditions as per No.172, page 148 of the Customs' Regulations of Canada; would respectfully urge that no duty be imposed upon such religious books as are essential to the work of the Churches; and would inform the authorities in Ottawa that this Synod is under long term contracts with the Cambridge and Oxford University Presses for the publication of the Prayer Books and Hymnals of the Church of England in Canada and would therefore be involved in much hardship and great financial loss should such duty be imposed.
The Synod also trusts that in view of the universal necessity of Bibles in religious worship and work they also may be held free of duty.
Notes
A copy of the above Resolution was forwarded to the Hon. Minister of Finance, Ottawa.
