§ Mr. FELL
asked the Secretary to the Admiralty, if the Order of 6th October referring to the removal of rum from bonded stores is still in force or if it has been withdrawn; if not, why it is considered to apply to small holders of rum when the Order only calls on the holders of more than ten puncheons to make declarations; and if the Director of Contracts, Branch V., Admiralty, will be communicated with?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The Order to which my hon. Friend alludes was rescinded by notice published in the "Gazette" on the 23rd instant. The remainder of the question does not therefore arise.
