HC Deb 23 July 1902 vol 111 c1010

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in the event of the. Licensing Bill becoming law before the adjournment of Parliament, it is intended that brewester sessions should beheld during the autumn as usual, or whether they are to be held in February, as provided for in the Bill.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Ritchie.) It is provided in Clause 13 of the Bill, which postpones brewster sessions till next February, that that enactment shall come into operation on the passing of the Act. I do not doubt that the Bill will become law in time to save the necessity of holding the sessions this autumn.
