HC Deb 24 February 1904 vol 130 c838
MR. KILBRIDE (Kildare, S.)

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether, in view of the fact that many brewers and blenders who own tied houses supply them with English spirit which they compel their tenants to sell as old Irish and Scotch whisky, he will in the interests of both commercial morality and the public health, cause instructions to be issued with a view to putting an end to these practices.

(Answered by Mr. Austen Chamberlain.) There is no evidence before me to support the allegation made in the Question.
