This statute he ordered to be observed from the octave of Saint Andrew in December and thenceforward ; and, for the observance thereof, ordered that in every city and borough in which wine is sold twelve inspectors should be appointed, and should make oath that they would cause the said assize to be kept and observed.

If any one was also found who should buy or sell a tun or tuns contrary to the said assize, both parties were to be seized, and placed in safe custody in prison, until some other command should be received relative to them; and it was enacted, that no wine should be bought for regrating, out of the wines that should have been landed in England. However, this first ordinance of the king had hardly been enacted, when it was immediately done away with ; as the merchants could not bear up against this assize. Accordingly, *o Rochelle.
