§ MR. LEIF JONES (Westmoreland, Appleby)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will grant a Return for England and Wales of the civil parishes in rural districts and of the wards in urban districts and boroughs where there are no premises licensed for the sale of intoxicating 159 liquors by retail, showing also the population of each such parish or ward, and their total number and population.
§ MR. GLADSTONE
To obtain the information asked for would involve considerable time and trouble, and I doubt whether the value of it, at all events as regards the wards of urban districts and boroughs, would be at all commensurate. If, however, my hon. friend wishes, I will endeavour to obtain the information as regards rural parishes.
