This Examinant faith, • / , That he is a Paper- ftainer, in very extenfive bufinefs in the city of Dublin, The Paper ufed for flaining is brought in, in reams. There are two fizes, one called Lapping, the other Elephant; twenty- four fheets of the former, and fixteen of the latter, form the piece of a dozen yards in length. Thefe Papers are of different degrees of finenefs, fometimes Paper of a ftill finer kind than either is ufed, but only in fmall quantities. Lapping- paper is feldom ufed for printing or gaining, but is generally for ibeeting. Raw Paper muft be brought in under a Permit, which fhould be handed to the Officer in charge, and a Certificate received in lieu of the Permit. Examinant believe. s that thefe regulations are little attended to, and that an account is feldom taken of any part of the Paper received into a Paper- ftainer's ftock, except fuch as he thinks proper to declare as intended for flaining. Examinant has no doubt, but the Duty is evaded to the extent of more than ten times the amount that is received. His reafon for making this computation is, that there are at prefent, he believes at leaft icventy- fix Tables licenfed in the diftrift of Dublin } and fuppofwg thefe Tables to work only 150 days in the year ( and they might work - 500 days) and to print and fin. lb twenty pieces of Paper each day, the Duty on this quantity would amount to 11,400.
