§ SIR EDWARD SASSOON (Hythe)
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what is the average annual value of the 1869 beer licensed houses; also, whether he will state the number of fully on-licensed houses other than the 1869 beerhouses whose average annual value is below £50.
(Answered by Mr. Secretary Akers-Douglas.) I have no means of distin- 448 guishing the "ante-'69" beerhouses from other beerhouses, and am unable, therefore, to give the average annual value of the former. The number of fully on-licensed houses of an annual value of less than £50 appears, from Papers which I have laid before Parliament in connection with the Bill, to be 34,535.
