§ MR. CHARLES ROBERTS (Lincoln)
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he can state the number of transfers of licences for the sale of intoxicating liquor for the latest year for which figures are available in the cities of Manchester, Birmingham, and Bristol, respectively; and whether any estimate has been framed or can be framed of the total number of transfers annually in England and Wales.
§ MR. GLADSTONE
I have not the particulars for which my hon. friend asks either as regards the places named, or as regards the country at large; but I will consider whether any information can be obtained.
