HC Deb 18 February 1908 vol 184 cc635-6

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if his attention has been called to the case of the taking away of the licence of the premises known as Smith's Vaults, Ulverston, and the payment of compensation amounting to £3,664, which has been succeeded by a club, known as the Magpie Club, on premises adjacent to the above, and said to belong to the same firm; and, if so, what action he proposes to take in regard to such cases.


My attention has been called to several cases of the kind referred to, and the matter is one which is receiving the careful attention of the Government in connection with the Licensing Bill now being prepared.
