HC Deb 12 November 1908 vol 196 c535
MR. MACKARNESS (Berkshire, Newbury)

I beg to ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he can state the number of new licences granted under the Act of 1904, and how many of them are subject to a tie in respect of the purchase of liquors.


In the years 1905–6–7, 165 new on-licences and 601 now off-licences have been granted and confirmed in England and Wales. My right hon. friend has no information as to how many of these licences are tied; but he may say that under Section 4 of the Act of 1904, which empowers them to impose conditions on new on-licences, the justices have in three cases laid down that the licence is not to become tied.
