TO PAY LANDING TAX
Australian passengers on the Orion refused to pay the 7/11 landing tax at Port Said to Egyptian quarantine of- ficials and threatened to remain on board. Shopkeepers, realising that they were losing trade, surrounded the officials with waving fists and the
tax was waived.
The quarantine men imposed the tax recently as part of an anti-Brit ish campaign.
