§ 52. Mr. R. MORRISON
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether goods held up pending the decision of the Customs officers as to whether they are dutiable or not are chargeable for warehouse rent?
§ Mr. CHURCHILL
Warehouses and sheds for the accommodation of imported goods are provided by dock companies, wharfingers, etc., and not by the Crown. Any question of a charge for warehouse rent is therefore a matter for settlement between the warehouse proprietor and the importer concerned.
