§ 67. Sir HENRY CRAIK
asked the Secretary for Scotland whether, at the Licensing Court held at Lochgilphead on 20th April, a renewal of the licence for the Crinan Hotel was granted to Adolf Grunewald, a German alien who is not allowed to reside in the proscribed district in which the hotel is situated, and who can therefore take no personal part in the management?
The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. McKinnon Wood)
I am informed that this licence holder is not an alien, having been naturalised in 1907; that a renewal was granted in the absence of any complaint as to the conduct of the business; and that the actual management is conducted by the licence-holder's wife, who is a Scotswoman with long experience in such matters.
§ Sir H. CRAIK
Can the right hon. Gentleman inform me why this man is not allowed, being a naturalised British subject, to reside inside the proscribed area?
