HC Deb 22 March 1907 vol 171 c1291

To ask the Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies if he can state the number of wholesale and retail licences, respectively, for the sale of intoxicating liquors, and the total revenue from such licences for the Bahamas, Barbados, Jamaica, Turks and Caicos Islands, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Grenada, each presidency of the Leeward Islands, Trinidad, and Tobago, respectively; and whether he could arrange that this information should be given yearly in future in the Annual Colonial Reports for the West Indies.

(Answered by Mr. Churchill.) I regret that I am unable to supply the hon. Member with the information which he desires, but if the hon. Member presses for information which will entail, I fear, considerable labour on the officials in the Colonies, the Governors of the Colonies referred to will be asked if they can conveniently arrange that the information should be furnished in the annual Blue-book Reports as requested.
