"Import quota established by the
Philippine Congress , is -strangling
the flow of U. S. tobacco to this
, traditional market,'.: the Leaf To
' bacco Industry ias" declared in a
brief filed 'with the U. S. delega
' Won, now holding hearings in Wash.
, tngton on the revision o' the' U.
S. Philippine Trade Agreement.
The brief was prepared by J. B.
Hutson, president .of Tobaco As-
soeiates, Incn Randolph $. Taylor,
executive secretary of the Burley
and Dark Leaf Tobacco Export As
sociation, Inc., and JVC. Lanier, gen
eral counsel for the . Tobacco As-
. sociation of United States and Leaf
Tobacco Exports association,
The Philippines have long been
an important v market , for U. S.
grown-tobacco. During the years
1945-49, U. S. tobacco exports, man-
. ufactured and unmanufactured, av
eraged - about 29 million pounds,
farm sales weight, per year; 1950
53. they averaged about 26 million.
The brief points out that "under
provisions of a law passed by the
Philippine Congress in 1952 .and a
mended in July of this year, tobac
co import quotas have been set up
. which will greatly reduce the Im
portation of U. S. tobacco."
The law. Republic Act 898, pro
vides for the following import quo
tas on ail foreign-grown leat tobac
co: For 1952, 75 percent of the total
importation ln l950 for 1953, 50
percent; for 1954, 40 percent and for
' succeeding years,: 25 percent of the
total Importation In 1950.
; Under the provisions, the tobac
co import quotas in 1953 amounted
to 143 million pounds, and foe 1954
the quota is, about 11 million. In
; succeeding years, the annual; quo
ta would be .around seven, million
' The July amendments further
" provide that " in 1954 and 1955,
quotas may be increased to pro-
vide for the importation of -enough
' tobacco which, when added to the
total domestic leaf production, will
permit the manufacture of tobacco
, products in amounts equivalent to
V" v of the previous fiscal year "y
' 'Ar Act B9B. as amended, how-
. . - .

.The Leaf Tobacco Industry con
tends 'that "should '.- the United
"Jptates adopt similar policy and,
v at the same time, establish a policy
t- of increasing her domestic produc
tions, most Philippine products
- would be- completely eliminated
from the U. S. market within a
) short time." t i
' In it's brief filed with the chair
man of the U. S. Delegation to the
. Philippine trade negotiations, the
Leaf ' Tobacco Industry - contends
that "Republic Act 696 violates Jhe
spirit and intent of the existing
trade agreement between the Unit
ed States and Phillpplnesr. , ,'
' , The existing trade agreement pro.
vides. : among i other things, that
with certain exception Philippine
articles could be Imported into the
United States duty-free and that
with certain exceptions U. S.' ar-
' tides could be imported into the
Philippines duty-free until July- 4,
1954, By mutual agreement of the
narties.? the: dutv-free berlod'has
been extended 18 additional monthsJ
. from. July 4, 1954. - 1 ' 7 ' "
; .t The present agreement, before the
1 duty-ffee provisions - were extend
ed, provided that from 'July , 1964
to Decenber 31, 1954 the rate of im
port duty Imposed by the" Phillp-
pines tin V, 8. leaf tobacco would
t be' five percent of the full irate

The brief also points out that
"Act 898 has had little f any ef
fect so far on the 'consumption of
U. S. tobacco in the Philippines be
cmse Philippine mai- f ""turcrs had
p-oumulated fairly lure! stocks of
' S. leaf prior to the implemen
ion of this Jaw" The brief adds,
I vever, that "recent reports indi-'
r ! that manufacturers' Stocks are

, ; k uJuction muat be cur-
tailed in the near future unless ade
quate imports are permitted. These
reports also indicate that some of
the agencies concerned with estab

"The imposition by either coun
try of quotas outside of those set
forth in -the trade agreement can

agreement " the brlf declared. "Im
port quotas have already - upset
trade relations of tobacco,'! the brief
added, at the iame time pointing
out that "Philippine products com
irtg into the Unites States have not
been curtailed or restricted other
than as provided for in the Trade
The Tobacco Industry strongly
urged that "the new trade agree
ment between the U. S. : and the
Philippines include the prohibition
against the application of quotas
by either country except as specif
ically set out in the existing agree
ment. "If the principle of quotas is ac
cepted as a fundamental part of the
new agreement we .strongly recom
mend that United States conferees
insist that quotas be limited to a
minimum yearly "figure based on
historical data.". .
