§ BARON DIMSDALE(on behalf of Mr. KENYON,, &c.) Denbigh
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether since 1890 the agricultural statistics have been furnished by the officers of Excise without extra remuneration; and whether it is contemplated to remove the work to another Department, or to vote an extra sum to the Excise Department for the performance of these duties?
§ MR. GOSCHEN
In reply to the first part of the hon. Member's question, I beg to refer him to several answers which I have recently given on the subject. No change in the system is at present in contemplation.
