HC Deb 27 August 1895 vol 36 c916
MR. A. D. PROVAND (Glasgow, Blackfriars)

I beg to ask the First Lord of the Treasury if the Government are favourable to the appointment of a Select Committee to consider the laws relating to the licensing and control of the liquor traffic in Scotland with a view to their amendment?


I think I cannot do better than repeat the answer I have already given to an hon. Member on this side of the House, who asked a similar question with regard to England—namely, that it is impossible that the Committee which was suggested should be appointed during the present Session in time to do any efficient work. The question will be considered by the Government during the Recess.
