§ MR. NOLAN (Louth, N.)
asked Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, Whether Russell's Temperance Hotel, Stephen's Green, Dublin, has been licensed as a house of public refreshment, resort, and entertainment, within the meaning of Section 6 of the Act 23 & 24 Vict. c. 107, during the last five years; and, if not now licensed, whether the Excise Authorities propose to take any action in the matter?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN) (St. George's, Hanover Square)
No refreshment house licence has been taken out in respect of Russell's Temperance Hotel during the last five years. It is not regarded as a house of public refreshment, resort, and entertainment within the meaning of the section referred to; and no action is contemplated by the Excise Authorities beyond that of satisfying themselves, from time to time, that the business is carried on in such a way as not to make Mr. Russell liable to Licence Duty.
