[15TH JULY, 1820.]

Whereas it is expedient that an additional Duty should he paid unto His Majesty on all Spirits and Tobacco which shall be imported into the Isle of Man under Licence, be it therefore enacted by the King's Most Excellent Majesty, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Lords Spiritual and Temporal, and Commons, in this present Parliament assembled, and by the Authority of the same, That on the Importation of any Spirits and Tobacco under any Licence granted by the Commissioners of His Majesty's Customs in England and Scotland respectively, pursuant to the Provisions of an Act passed in the Forty-fifth Year of His late Majesty's Reign, intituled, "An Act for regulating and encouraging the Trade, for. the Improvernent of the Revenue, and Prevention of Smuggling in and from the Isle of Man," there shall be raised, collected, and paid unto His Majesty, His Heirs and Successors, an additional Duty of One Shilling and Sixpence for every GalIon of Brandy and Geneva, and an additional Duty of One Shilling for every Gallon of Rum, and so in Proportion for any greater or less Quantity, and an additional Duty of One Shilling upon every Pound Weight of Tobacco, and so in Proportion for any greater or less Quantity, in like Manner and Form, and under the same Rules, Regulations, and Forfeitures as are imposed by the said recited Act, and by another Act passed in the Fiftieth Year of His said late Majesty's Reign, intituled, "An Act for consolidating the Duties of Customs for the Isle of Man, and for placing the same under the Management of the Commissioners of Customs in England," and by a further Act passed in the Fifty-first Year of His said late Majesty's Reign, intituled, "An Act for explaining and amending an Act passed in the last Session of Parliament for consolidating the Duties of Customs for the Isle of Man, and for placing the same under the Management of the Commissioners of Customs in England."

II.ľAnd whereas by the afore-recited Act, passed in the Forty-fifth Year of His said late Majesty's Reign, it is lawful for the Commissioners of His Majesty's Customs in England and Scotland respectively, or any Four of them, and they are hereby required (if the same shall be lawfully demanded under the Authority of the said Act so to do), to grant their Licences for the Importation into the Port of Douglas, in the Isle of Man, of certain Quantities of Wine, Brandy, Geneva, Rum, Tea, Coffee, and Tobacco: And whereas it is expedient to allow a limited Quantity of Muscovado Sugar to be imported into the said Port of Douglas, and to permit the same to be shipped directly from the Warehouse in which the same may have been secured in Great Britain, without the Duties due on the Importation thereof being first paid; and also a limited Number of Packs of Playing Cards to be imported into the said Port; be it therefore further enacted, That it shall and may be lawful for the Commissioners of His Majesty's Customs in England, or any Four of them, to grant their Licences, under the Rules, Regulations and Provisions of the said recited Act, for the Importation into the [508] Port of Douglas, in the Isle of Man, of Five thousand five hundred Weight of Muscovado Sugar, and Four thousand Packs of Playing Cards, and no more, in any one Year, in British-built Ships, owned, registered, and navigated according to Law, and not of less Burthen than Fifty Tons.

III.ľAnd be it further enacted, That any such Sugar, intended to be imported into the said Port of Douglas by Virtue of any such Licence, shall and may be taken out of any Warehouse or Warehouses wherein the same may have been lodged or secured, without Payment of Duty, for the Purpose of being so imported as aforesaid; any Thing in any Act or Acts to the contrary notwithstanding.

IV.ľAnd whereas by another Act passed in the Fiftieth Year of the Reign of His said late Majesty, intituled, "An Act for consolidating the Duties of Customs for the Isle of Man, and for placing the same under the Management of the Commissioners of Customs in England," Muscovado Sugar and Playing Cards, as being Goods, Wares and Merchandize not therein-before charged with Duty, imported from Great Britain or Ireland, is made liable, by Schedule A. annexed to the said Act, to the Duty of Two Pounds and Ten Shillings for every One hundred Pounds of the Value thereof: And whereas it is expedient to make other Provision in respect of the said Duty on Muscovado Sugar imported into the said Island by Virtue of any Licence granted in Pursuance of this Act, be it therefore further enacted, That from and after the Fifth Day of July One thousand eight hundred and twenty, in lieu and instead of the aforesaid Duty of Two Pounds and Ten Shillings, there shall be raised, levied, collected, and paid the Sum of One Shilling. for every Hundred and twelve Pounds Weight of Muscovado Sugar so imported, which said One Shilling shall be raised, levied, collected, paid and applied, and the said Duty of Two Pounds and Ten Shillings upon Playing Cards according to the Value thereof, shall continue to be collected, levied, paid, and applied in like Manner as the said Two Pounds and Ten Shillings was directed by the afore-recited Act, and another Act passed in the Fifty-first Year of His said late Majesty's Reign, intituled, "An Act for explaining and amending an Act passed in the last Session of Parliament for consolidating the Duties of Customs for the Isle of Man, and for placing the same under the Management of. the Commissioners of Customs in England:" Provided always, that on the Importation of any such Sugar and Playing Cards into the Isle of Man pursuant to this Act, all the Rules, Regulations, Restrictions, Securities, Penalties, and Forfeitures contained in any Act or Acts of Parliament in force relating to Goods so exported or imported, and to the Payment, Recovery, and Appropriation of any Fine, Penalty, or Forfeiture relating thereto, and all the Clauses, Provisions, Regulations, Restrictions; Penalties, and Forfeitures contained in any Act or Acts or Laws in force in Relation to the Isle of Man, shall so far as they are not hereby altered or varied, and in respect of which no other Provision is made by this Act, be and are hereby declared to be in full force and to extend to this Act, and shall be construed therewith and as Part thereof, so far as the same respectively apply, as fully as if the same were particularly repealed and re-enacted in the Body of this Act.

V.ľAnd whereas by another Act passed in the Seventh Year of the Reign of His said late Majesty King George the Third, intituled, "An Act for encouraging and regulating the Trade and Manufactures of the Isle of Man, and for the more easy Supply of the Inhabitants there with a certain Quantity of Wheat, Barley, Oats, Meal, and Flour, authorized by an Act made in this Session to be transported to the said Isle," it is enacted, that no Tea, or Spirits of any Kind whatsoever, or Tobacco, may be exported or shipped, or laden on Board any Ship, Vessel, or Boat, in order to be exported from the Isle of Man to any Place whatsoever. And whereas the [509] Provisions in the said Acts have been found insufficient to prevent the illegal Exportation of the aforesaid Articles: Be it enacted, That if any Tea, Spirits of any Kind whatsoever, or Tobacco, shall be brought to or found on any Wharf, or other Place, with Intent to be Waterborne for Exportation, the same shall be forfeited, together with the Horses or other Cattle, Carts or other Carriages, employed in removing the same, to be seized by any Officer or Officers of the Army, Navy, Marines, or Customs. Provided always, that if any Dispute shall arise, whether any such Goods were intended to be Waterborne for Exportation, the Proof thereof shall lie upon the Owner or Claimer thereof, or the Person or Persons on whom the same shall be found, and not on the Officer seizing the same.

VI.ľAnd whereas by another Act passed in the Twenty-sixth Year of the Reign of His said late Majesty King George the Third, intituled, "An Act to explain an Act made in the last Session of Parliament, with respect to the Allowances to be made for Waste on the Exportation of White Salt and Rock Salt to the Isle of Man, for limiting the Quantity of British refined Sugar to he exported to the Isle of Man, and for certain other Purposes," the Commissioners of His Majesty's Customs in England, or any Three of them, shall and may grant Licences, without Fee or Reward, (to continue in force Three Months), to any of His Majesty's Subjects to export from the Port of Liverpool into the Port of Douglas, in the Isle of Man, certain Quantities of British refined Sugar therein mentioned and expressed. And whereas by another Act passed in the Fifty-first Year of the Reign of His said late Majesty, intituled, "An Act to allow a greater Number of Sheep to be carried from England to the Isle of Man than are now permitted by Law," it is enacted, that it shall and may be lawful for the Commissioners of His Majesty's Customs in England, or any Three of them, to grant Licences in the Manner prescribed by Law, to remain in force for One Month from the Date thereof, for the Exportation from the Ports of Liverpool and Whitehaven into the Port of Douglas or Ramsey, in the Isle of Man, of a limited Number of live Sheep in any one Year: And whereas it is expedient that the Period allowed for the Exportation of Sugar and Sheep from that Part of the United Kingdom called England, into the Isle of Man should be altered; be it therefore further enacted, That the Commissioners of His Majesty's Customs, or any Three of them, shall and may grant Licences, in the Manner prescribed by Law, for the Exportation of the several Quantities of refined Sugar and Number of live Sheep allowed to be exported into the Isle of Man, to continue in force for any Period until the Fifth Day of July next ensuing the granting thereof.

VII.ľAnd whereas an Act was passed in the Fifty-third Year of the Reign .of His said late Majesty King George the Third, for authorizing the Commissioners of Customs to make an Allowance for the necessary Subsistence of poor Persons confined for Debts, or Penalties sued for under their Orders, in Great Britain: And whereas it is expedient to make the like Allowance to poor Persons so confined in the Isle of Man, be it therefore further enacted, That for the necessary Subsistence of any poor Person confined in the Isle of Man, under or by Virtue of any Exchequer Process for the Recovery of any Duties or Penalties under or by Virtue of any Act or Acts of Parliament now in force, or hereafter to be made, relating to the Revenue of Customs or the Prevention of Smuggling, or confined under or by Virtue of any Warrant or Warrants of any Deemster or Deemsters in the Isle of Man, under or by Virtue of any Act or Acts of Parliament now in force, or hereafter to be made, relating to the Revenue of Customs or the Prevention of Smuggling, it shall and may be lawful to and for the Commissioners of Customs in that Part of the United Kingdom called England, or any Four or more of them, to cause an Allowance not exceeding the Sum of Seven- [510] pence Halfpenny, and not less than Fourpence Halfpenny per Day, to be made to any such poor Person out of any Money in the Hands of the Collector of the Customs at the Port of Douglas, in the said Isle of Man, arising from the Duties of Customs.
