HC Deb 03 August 1897 vol 52 c238
SIR WILFRID LAWSON (Cumberland, Cockermouth)

I beg to ask the Under Secretary of State for War whether the Military authorities have received any communication from Lord Peel, Chairman of the Licensing Commission, as to the irregular sale of drink at the Wellington Barracks, at the Woolwich Barracks, and at the canteen of the Corps of Commissionaires in the Strand; and, if so, whether any steps are being taken in the matter?


A communication has been received from the Secretary to the Royal Commission, and inquiry is being made into the alleged cases of disobedience to the regulations for army canteens.
