HC Deb 05 June 1907 vol 175 c694
*SIR. J. RANDLES (Cumberland, Cockermouth)

I beg to ask the Prime Minister if he will consider the desirability of introducing the Licensing Bill before the end of this session, with a view to its consideration during the Autumn.


The Answer is in the negative.


Will the right hon. Gentleman suggest to the Prime Minister the advisability of allowing conventions of friends of temperance to consider the Bill and perhaps in this way save Parliamentary time next session by preventing the introduction next year of an abortive measure?

[No Answer was returned.]
