EXPLANATORY Notes. 1. In "Conventional Rates fixed by Treaties," "F" stands for the Japanese Treaty with France, “G” for that with Germany, “A” for that with Austria-Hungary, and the “ U.K." for that with the United Kingdom. These are marked thus * in Tariffs, and given in brackets ( ).

2. The specific rates of duty stated under the “ Conventional” Rates in brackets [ ], are those fixed by Supplementary Convention between the U.K. and Japan as the equivalents of various ad val. rates, established by the Treaty of the 16th July, 1894. The corresponding ad val. rate is mentioned for purposes of reference.

3. The specific rate is fixed by the U.K. Treaty alone. If, on the conversion of ad val. to specific rates under the German and French Treaties, any reductions are made on the specific rates stated, imports into Japan from the U.K. will have the advantage of such reductions under the inost-favoured-nation clause in our Treaty.

+. The articles marked (*) will remain entitled on their importation into Japan from the U.K. to the application of the conventional rates given in brackets.
