HC Deb 19 June 1907 vol 176 c457

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Homo Department whether his attention has been drawn to the grant of a new licence to the "Drum" publichouse, Southall, Middlesex, in face of opposition from the district council of the area affected, and from local residents and property owners, who protested both by giving evidence in the licensing court and by resolution at public meetings, and by a numerously signed petition against the grant of the licence; and whether he will take steps in connection with the Licensing Bill to provide machinery to prevent publichouses being dumped down in localities contrary to the declared wishes of the inhabitants concerned.


My attention has not been drawn to this case, but I will make inquiry into it.
