MR. HERBERT ROBERTS (Denbighshire, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether he will state why the delay has 993 occurred in distributing to Members the Licensing Bill which was introduced on the 31st ultimo, and can he say when the Bill will be in the hands of the Members.
§ * MR. RITCHIE
The Bill has been sent to the printers, and I hope that it will be issued within a very few days. I cannot say when the Second Reading will be taken.
