§ SIR THOMAS DEWAR (Tower Hamlets, St. George's)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if the Return of Licences Refused Renewal, given in the Parliamentary Paper, No. 141 of the present session, includes licences surrendered or agreed to be surrendered by brewers and others in consequence of intentions expressed by licensing magistrates to reduce the number of licences; and, if not, whether he will order a Return of surrendered licences.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Akers Douglas.) The answer to the first part of the Question is in the negative, and I do not think that it would be practicable to obtain a Return giving the information indicated.
