§ MR. PULESTON (Devonport)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether it is intended to fill up the vacant Secretary ship to the Board of Customs; and, if so, when this appointment may be expected to be made?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
the Secretary ship to the Board of Customs will be kept vacant pending the consideration of the question of the amalgamation of the Customs and the Board of Inland Revenue. This consideration has been delayed by the illness of the Chairman of the Board of Customs, with whom the Papers are.
