HC Deb 19 March 1907 vol 171 cc660-1
MR. CLOUGH (Yorkshire, W.R. Skipton)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received a resolution signed by twelve licensing justices of the East Staincliffe petty sessions, urging the necessity for early legislation to give to licensing authorities absolute powers to grant or refuse applications for new licenses, or the renewal of existing ones, for clubs where intoxicants are sold; and whether the promised licensing measure will contain some such provisions.


The Answer to the first part of the Question is in the affirmative; and to the second that I cannot at present add anything to my previous statements that the question of clubs is receiving consideration.
