§ MR. CHARLES ROBERTS (Lincoln)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he can state what was the number of premises licensed by justices for the sale of intoxicating liquors on the premises, and the number of such premises for off sale, respectively, existing on the 1st of January, 1907.
§ MR. GLADSTONE
I am not in possession of the actual figures desired by the hon. Member; but the information contained in the volume of Licensing Statistics for 1906 enables an estimate to be made, according to which it would appear that on-licences numbered about 97,700 on 1st January last, and off-licences about 25,100. The actual figures will be given in due course in the Licensing Statistics for 1907.
