HC Deb 11 August 1843 vol 71 c585

The Customs' bill was read a third time.

Mr. Gladstone

moved the insertion of a clause in lieu of clause 14, to render manufactures of Gibraltar, Malta, and Heligoland, made of materials of foreign produce liable to duty, like the produce of a foreign country.

Clause read a first time.

On the question, that the clause be read a second time,

Mr. Milner Gibson

contended that the clause would have the effect of making the Corn Bill of last Session more restrictive than it was at present, by subjecting corn from Heligoland to a duty; and proposed the insertion of the words, "Provided that nothing in this clause shall be deemed to affect flour or meal."

Mr. Gladstone

objected to the amendment, which was withdrawn, and clause agreed to.

Further proceedings adjourned.
