§ 32. Mr. GINNELL
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, seeing that Customs officials have no instructions to tamper with goods going to Ireland, he will say by whose orders, and on what authority, cases of sporting cartridges ordered from Birmingham by Messrs. Nooney and Son, merchants, Mullingar, in the ordinary course of their business, were last July examined, disturbed, and delayed at Holyhead, and again at North Wall, and a charge made for each examination, amounting in all to 10s.; and whether he will have this money refunded and an apology tendered?
§ Mr. LLOYD GEORGE
The hon. Member has now asked this question at least six times, and I can add nothing to the full explanation which has already been given.
§ Mr. GINNELL
Will the right hon. Gentleman inform the House why he persists in an answer which this receipt in my hand proves is untrue, and whether the money mentioned in the question, for which this is the receipt, will be refunded?
No answer being given,
The hon. Member cannot keep on putting down the same question. He may be dissatisfied with the answer, but having had his answer, there is an end to it.
