HC Deb 30 September 1909 vol 11 c1542

Subject to such regulations and security as the Commissioners of Customs and Excise may prescribe, a dealer in beer may deposit in a warehouse approved by the Commissioners beer brewed in the United Kingdom upon which duty has been paid, and may in the warehouse add to the beer finings for clarification or any other matter sanctioned by the Commissioners for the purpose of preparing the beer for exportation or use as ship's stores.

Question proposed, "That the Clause stand part of the Bill."


Will the right hon. Gentleman state what is the necessity for the Clause?


I made a promise to an hon. Gentleman opposite at the time the Finance Bill was before the House last year, and I have endeavoured to meet that promise by this Clause.

Clause ordered to stand part of the Bill.
