HC Deb 15 November 1906 vol 165 c96
MR. J. M. ROBERTSON (Northumberland, Tyneside)

I beg to ask the Undersecretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether in Egypt it is necessary that licences should be obtained for the opening and working of breweries and distilleries, and, if so, for what period such are granted; whether arrangements are in force for the inspection and supervision of such breweries and distilleries, and for testing the quality and strength of the liquors produced; whether there is any law as to adulteration; and, if so, whether there is any objection to a copy of the same being produced for the information of the House, together with a statement as to the number of prosecutions, convictions, and repeated convictions of offending brewers and distillers under such law, showing their nationalities and the penalties inflicted in each case during the years between 1900 and 1906.


I will endeavour to obtain the information desired by the hon. Member.
