MR. T. F. RICHARDS (Wolverhampton, W.)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether his attention has been called to the fact that the Loughborough licensing justices have granted a licence to the Brush Company at Loughborough for the sale at their works of intoxicating liquors for the benefit of those workmen who are living on the premises during the present dispute; and whether, seeing that such permission makes such premises so licensed a public house, and in view of the provisions of the Truck Act, he proposes to take any, and, if any, what, steps in the matter.
§ * MR. GLADSTONE
I am making inquiries into this matter, which are not yet complete, and I shall be glad if the hon. Member will repeat his question in a few days time.
