HC Deb 29 April 1872 vol 210 c1930

asked the Chief Secretary for Ireland, Whether it is the intention of the Government to introduce a separate Intoxicating Liquor Licensing Bill for Ireland this Session, or whether he proposes to legislate on this subject by introducing Clauses into the English Bill which will extend its operation to Ireland, subject to the necessary modifications, as has been done in some other cases?


said, in reply, that when he saw what Amendments were introduced in that House into the Licensing Bill for England which had recently been submitted to the House of Lords, he would decide whether he should endeavour to extend its operation to Ireland by the introduction of additional clauses; or whether it would be expedient to bring in a separate Bill relating to that country?
