HC Deb 07 May 1903 vol 122 cc25-6
MR. SULLIVAN (Westmeath, S.)

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether his attention has been called to the fact that a licence for a bonding store has been granted to a miller in Dublin and refused to one in the country; and if so, will he take steps to grant the same facilities to millers in country places as in Dublin.


It is probable that this Question refers to a verbal application made to the collector of Customs at Dublin for bonding privileges for a millers' store situated in the country at a considerable distance from that port. As it would be impossible for Customs Officers to supervise the premises in question the matter has been referred to the Commissioners of Inland Revenue, who have officers stationed in the neighbourhood, and who will be prepared to consider a specific application for bonding privileges. The same course will be pursued with regard to inland bonding in general.
