HC Deb 15 March 1897 vol 47 cc663-4
MR. H. HOBHOUSE (Somerset, E.)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department when the Bill for the establishment of Reformatories for Inebriates, announced in Her Majesty's Gracious Speech, is likely to be introduced?


I am afraid I cannot, at present, say. The Bill has been fur some time in a forward state of preparation, but there are still remaining some important points which require to be settled.
