HC Deb 05 June 1890 vol 345 c62
MR. SUMMERS (Huddersfield)

I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will cause inquiry to be made as to the number of "tied houses" in each City, Municipal Borough, and Petty Sessional Division respectively in England and Wales?


The Inland Revenue Department has no knowledge of what houses are "tied" and what are not, as the question is one of private contracts, beyond the cognisance of the Government.
