HC Deb 14 August 1834 vol 25 c1264

Lord Althorp moved, that the Amendments made by the Lords in the Sale of Beer Act Amendment Bill be agreed to.

On that Amendment relating to the power of visiting those Houses, with which constables were invested being read,

Mr. Hume

protested against domiciliary visits, and said he should divide the House.

Lord Althorp

said, he should have been better satisfied if the right of entry had been limited to one hour after the time appointed for shutting up the houses, still he should support the Amendment as it stood.

Mr. Thomas Attwood

denounced the measure as tyrannical, as the result of old women's talk, or men like old women, who went up and down through the country circulating idle stories about drunkenness and immorality.

The House divided: Ayes 29; Noes 12—Majority 17.
