HC Deb 16 May 1890 vol 344 cc1112-3
SIR GEORGE BADEN-POWELL (Liverpool, Kirkdale)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether Her Majesty's Government have acquired any recent information as to the results of the control of the drink traffic in the United States; and whether there are any authoritative Reports of recent date which can be presented to Parliament?


My hon. Friend has not observed a very complete Report on this subject by Mr. Edwards, Her Majesty's Secretary of Legation at Washington, which has been laid before Parliament as No. 154 of the Miscellaneous Foreign Office Reports. This Paper, which has been extensively noticed, both in this country and in the United States, brings down all the information available upon the subject to a recent date.
