§ MR. WHITWELL
asked the Under Secretary of State for the Colonies, Whether the Ordinance projected last 252 year for superseding the freedom of the Port of Gibraltar by the introduction of certain Customs regulations, has been overruled?
§ MR. J. LOWTHER
Sir, among other considerations, it having been found that beneficial results have followed a stricter enforcement of the existing port regulations, Her Majesty's Government have decided not to proceed further at present with the Draft Ordinance to which the hon. Gentleman refers.
