HC Deb 20 May 1914 vol 62 cc1940-1
63. Mr. YEO

asked the Home Secretary the amount contributed to the compensation fund in the county of London by the licensees of on-licensed houses in each petty sessional division, and the amount paid in compensation to the licensees in each petty sessional division for each year since the Act of 1904 came into force?


The information asked for in the first part of the question is not available. The compensation charges are collected and paid over to the compensation authority for the county of London as a whole. The number of licences extinguished with compensation and the total amount paid in each petty sessional division are shown yearly in Table II. (A) and (B) of the Licensing Statistics.


Would the right hon. Gentleman consider the advisability of having a circular to be sent to the bench of each petty sessional division in order that they may have the simple facts before them instead of having to wade through large volumes?


Yes, I will consider that point.


They are sent.
