§ MR. J. O'CONNOR (Wicklow, W.)
I beg to ask the Chief Secretary to the Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, is any daily or weekly account kept of the quantity of margarine delivered in 379 Dublin; are the names of the consignees recorded; and whether it is entered in the Dublin Custom House list as margarine, or under some other name?
§ THE PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TRADE
I will answer this Question. No daily or weekly account is kept of the quantity of margarine delivered in Dublin, nor are the names of consignees of this article recorded. Margarine imported into Dublin from abroad is entered as such in the daily bill of entry list, but, when received coastwise, is entered in that list under the general term of "merchandise." The only coastwise goods which are entered under their separate denominations are dutiable goods and those as to which any particular person or firm may have applied to have their consignments so treated.
