§ MR. AYRTON
moved for a return of the number of licences granted by the Board of Inland Revenue in each parish within every city and town, and within the country beyond the limits thereof in England and Wales, for the year ending the 30th of March, 1861, distinguishing the licences under certain heads.
said, he must object to the Return in its present form, as it could not be given without great labour. He called for a Return of the number of each 14 different kings of licence in each parish. There were 15,000 parishes and more than 243 100,000 licences of one description only. He had another objection—namely, the difficulty of obtaining the required information, for Inland Revenue Office in London did not possess it, but would have to apply to the several local offices throughout the kingdom. He would agree to the Return, if instead of "each parish" it was for each "borough and country only."
