HC Deb 16 April 1907 vol 172 c753

To ask the Prime Minister whether he is yet in a position to state when the licensing legislation referred to in His Majesty's Speech will be introduced; and if the contemplated Bill will deal with the licensing question in Ireland as well as in England, or if any separate measure of licensing reform to meet the needs of Ireland will be introduced by the Government during the present session.

(Answered by Sir H. Campbell-Bannerman.) I am not in a position as yet to answer the first part of the hon. Member's Question. Ireland will not be included in the Bill in question, nor is it intended to introduce a separate measure dealing with Irish licences during the present session
