HC Deb 30 July 1897 vol 51 c1704

On the order to go into Committee on this Bill,

MR. TUDOR HOWELL (Denbigh Boroughs)

said that, considering that a Commission was now sitting considering the whole question of licensing, and the time was 25 minutes to 2 o'clock, that was not the hour at which to deal with the amendment of the licensing laws in any respect. Under these circumstances he moved to report progress.

MR. A. D. PROVAND (Glasgow, Blackfriars)

explained that the Bill was merely intended to rectify an omission in the Act of 1868. The Bill had the approval of the Government, of the late Government, and the Inland Revenue.

Committee report progress; to sit again To-morrow.
