HC Deb 01 March 1906 vol 152 cc1295-6

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he is aware that smuggled saccharine, of the value of £700, was seized and thrown into the sea by order of the Customs on Monday last; whether it could not have been saved for purposes connected with any Government departments; and if any settled rule is prescribed for dealing, with smuggled articles.

(Answered by Mr. Asquith.) I would refer the hon. Baronet to the reply given yesterday on this subject to the hon. Member for Thanet by the Secretary to the Treasury.
