HC Deb 05 May 1904 vol 134 cc523-4
MR. HENRY HOBHOUSE (Somersetshire, E.)

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he can supplement his statement as to licences by giving, for each county and county borough, the aggregate annual values of hotels, other alehouses and beerhouses, respectively, within each area.

(Answered by Mr. Secretary Akers-Douglas.) I am not sure "that I understand the object which my right hon. friend has in view in asking for figures in this form, but I doubt whether it would be useful to give the aggregate annual values as he suggests. I am, however, ready to consider in what manner and to what extent the statement which I have already laid before the House can, in due course, be supplemented so as to provide hon. Members with all necessary information.
