By this Act,
After reciting that the time for payment of the duty of Excise on malt made by makers of malt who have given security in that behalf is limited by law to six weeks after the making up of the account or return of the duty chargeable, and it is expedient to alter and extend the time for payment of a portion of the said duty as hereinafter mentioned:

months on the respective amounts of duty the payment whereof shall be so deferred as aforesaid.
2. Every bond or other security which has or shall have been given or entered into by any maker of malt for securing the payment of the duty of Excise on malt under any former Act, and now in force, shall remain and continue in force against the principal and sureties who shall have made or entered into the same, as a security for payment as well of the said duty according to the directions of any former Act now in force as of the said duty and interest according to the terms and conditions of this Act, as if the said terms and conditions had been inserted in and made part of the condition of such bond or security, unless the said parties or some one of them shall, before the 1st of April next after the passing of this Act, give notice to the Commissioners of Inland Revenue of his desire to withdraw from such bond or security, in which case the maltster shall not be entitled to any credit for payment of the duty of Excise on any malt made by him until he shall have given fresh security in that behalf to the satisfaction of the said Commissioners.
3. Provided always, That nothing herein contained shall be deemed to prejudice or affect the right or power of the said Commissioners, whenever they shall deem any of the said duties to be in danger, to require immediate payment thereof, and in default of payment the same shall be recoverable forthwith as duties of Excise due and in arrear.
