HC Deb 27 July 1915 vol 73 c2139
46. Mr. PRATT

asked the Prime Minister, having regard to the need for thrift and economy among all classes in the United Kingdom and the increase of savings of the Russian people consequent on the enactment of restrictive liquor laws in that country, whether he will consider the desirability of similar legislation for this country, in addition to what may be done by the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic)?

The PRIME MINISTER (Mr. Asquith)

I must refer my hon. Friend to my answer to a similar question put by the hon. Member for Central Edinburgh on the 5th instant.
