§ SIR THOMAS DEWAR (Tower Hamlets,) St. George's
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will insert a clause in the Licensing Bill to provide that proprietors, directors, or shareholders in breweries, shall not be debarred from sitting upon the Licensing Bench when they have no personal interest in the business under discussion.
§ * THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. AKERS-DOUGLAS,) Kent, St. Augustine's
I do not contemplate adding any such clause to the Bill. Of course if my hon. friend desires to take the opinion of the House on the point he can put down an Amendment.
