(b.) That the goods, if not wholly produced or manufactured in the United Kingdom, contain at least 25 per cent. of United Kingdom labour and material in the factory or works cost.

In the case of certain Colonies it is essential that the final process of manufacture shall take place in the United Kingdom, and that the goods are consigned therefrom to the Colonies in question.

5. The following statement has been prepared as a guide to exporters in computing the factory or works cost of the goods exported, and the percentage value therein of United Kingdom labour and material.

(ii.) Manufacturing wages.
(iii.) Factory overhead expenses.
(iv.) Inside containers.

The following items must not be included in the factory or works cost, being charges incurred subsequent to the completion of the manufactured goods :

condition.

(vii.) Royalties.

(viii.) Carriage, insurance, &c., from place of production or manufacture to port of shipment.

(ix.) Any other charges incurred subsequent to the completion
of the manufacture of the goods.

Proportion of United Kingdom Labour and Material.

6. In calculating the value of United Kingdom labour and material in the factory or works cost for the purpose of determining whether the goods are eligible for preference, the following items only may be included :—

(a.) Materials so far as they are of United Kingdom origin, but not including any excise or other duty paid or payable in the United Kingdom.

(b.) Manufacturing wages.

(c.) Factory overhead expenses.

(d.) Inside containers of United Kingdom origin.

(Note. In the case of goods which have at some stage.
entered into the commerce of or undergone a process
of manufacture in a foreign country, only that labour

be regarded as the produce or manufacture of the
United Kingdom in calculating the proportion of
United Kingdom labour and material in the factory
