§ MR. FELL
I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he proposes to take any steps to prevent the officials of his Department from joining the Brewery Debenture Holders Committee, being a committee formed to protect the pecuniary interests of the holders of debentures secured upon breweries.
§ THE SECRETARY OF STATE FOR THE HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. GLADSTONE,) Leeds, W.
No, Sir; I have no reason to think that any Home Office official would wish to join that committee. I may add with reference to the Question asked last Monday by my hon. friend the Member for Lincoln, that the Chief Constable of West Sussex has withdrawn his name from the list of the local Brewery Debenture Holders Committee in which it appeared.
