§ Mr. GRETTON
asked the numbers of members of registered clubs in England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, respectively; and what number of clubs are registered in England, Scotland, Ireland, and Wales, respectively?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. McKenna)
The latest volume of licensing statistics shows that on the 1st January, 1910, there were 7,294 registered clubs in England, and 242 in Wales, making a total of 7,536. There is no information available as to the numbers of the members of the clubs. As regards Scotland and Ireland, the matter is one for the Scottish and Irish offices respectively; but I may say that I understand that there are no collected figures for those countries similar to those for England and Wales.
