(a) the licence duty which would under the Fisheries Acts, 1842 to 1925, have been paid in respect of such licence if such special local licence had been an ordinary licence authorising the use of the same kind of engine, net, instrument, or device as that to which such special local licence relates, and

(b) the special local licence duty paid under this Act in respect of such special local licence.

(2) All moneys received by the Minister under this section shall be paid into or disposed of for the benefit of the Exchequer in such manner as the Minister for Finance may direct.
