HC Deb 09 April 1897 vol 48 c837
SIR WILFRID LAWSON (Cumberland, Cockermouth)

I beg to ask the noble Lord the Member for Westhoughton whether the sale of liquor within the precincts of the House, which Mr. Attorney General has declared he considers to be illegal, is still carried on; and, if so, whether the Kitchen Committee propose to take any action in the matter?

LORD STANLEY (Lancashire, Westhoughton)

I have only just seen the Question. I do not think the Kitchen Committee propose to make the slightest change. I shall put the Bill down every night, and I hope that the hon. Baronet will allow the Bill to go through.


Until the noble Lord gets his remedy does he intend to go on breaking the law every day?


Yes, Sir. [Much laughter.]
