HC Deb 03 May 1888 vol 325 c1222
MR. BONSOR (Surrey, Wimbledon)

asked the President of the Local Government Board, Whether, instead of making the compensation of licence-holders a charge upon the County Rates, he will accept an Amendment to the Local Government Bill authorizing the County Council to allocate to a fund to be used exclusively for the purpose of compensating licence-holders, who are deprived of their licences under Clause 13, the additions which may be made to the existing Licence Duties?

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

The suggestion as to the allocation of the increased Licence Duties which may be levied is one which deserves consideration; and if an Amendment is moved to the effect referred to, I will undertake that it shall be fully considered by the Government.
