Empire Trade Commission, 1913

Empire Trade Commission, 1913

The UK government appointed a trade commission to investigate trading conditions in the British dominions, including New Zealand, in the aftermath of the imperial conference of 1911. The commissioners, who included the popular novelist H. Rider Haggard, spent several weeks in New Zealand in the first months of 1913. Eventually the commission’s rather leisurely progress was interrupted by the First World War, and a report was not made until 1918.
