§ 23. Mr. DUNCAN MILLAR
asked the First Lord of the Admiralty how many orders have been issued by the competent naval authorities under the Defence of the Realm Act and consolidated regulations for the restriction of the hours of sale for licensed premises: and if he can state the hours fixed in each case and the conditions, if any, imposed on the licence-holders?
§ Dr. MACNAMARA
The information asked for is not available, but the number of cases in which such orders have been issued by competent naval aurthorities can only be very small. Such orders would usually be issued by competent military authorities.
