§ MR. STOREY (Sunderland)
I beg to ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer what was the total amount received last year for licences for the sale of intoxicating liquor in England, Scotland, and Ireland respectively; and whether he will grant a Return showing the amounts so received from each county and county borough?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER (Mr. GOSCHEN,) St. George's, Hanover Square
I must ask the hon. Member to repeat the question on Thursday. It will not be possible to procure the information for some time.
§ MR. STOREY
Will the information be given before the House goes into Committee on the Licensing Bill? because it is upon this basis that the right hon. Gentleman proposes to allocate the money.
§ MR. GOSCHEN
I think the Government will be able, in the course of a few days, to give the information in regard to each county and county borough. I will see what can be done.
