HC Deb 22 August 1916 vol 85 cc2474-5
20. Mr. PRATT

asked the Secretary for Scotland whether he has yet considered the proposals for liquor prohibition in Scotland during the War, placed before him by a representative deputation on 25th July last; and if he can now make a statement on the subject?


As my hon. Friend is probably aware, since receiving the deputation referred to in the question, I have recently received two further deputations on the same subject. The whole matter is receiving my most careful consideration.
