HC Deb 26 April 1888 vol 325 cc601-2
MR. W. A. M'ARTHUR (Cornwall, Mid, St. Austell)

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether he would present to the House a Return showing the number of houses licensed for the sale of intoxicating liquors in England, and the number of those houses which are in independent hands, and the number which are in the hands of firms of brewers and distillers?

THE PRESIDENT (Mr. RITCHIE) (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)

I am afraid that I cannot present the Return the hon. Gentleman asks for. We have no such information, and no means of obtaining it.
