HC Deb 06 April 1897 vol 48 c606
MR. EDWARD CARSON () Dublin University

I beg to ask the Secretary to the Treasury if he can explain the cause of the delays existing at the Custom House in Dublin in adjudicating on documents lodged for the purpose of being adjudicated upon pursuant to Section 12 of The Stamp Act, 1891; and whether such documents are adjudicated upon in Dublin or are sent to London for that purpose?


The Board of Inland Revenue inform me that no unreasonable delay takes place except where the parties presenting the documents do not furnish the information which is necessary to enable the proper duty to be adjudicated. If the right hon. Member will mention to me any particular case of delay I will cause further inquiry to be made. The documents are adjudicated upon in Dublin, and only in exceptional cases is a reference to London required.
