§ 72. Sir GEORGE TOULMIN
asked the Minister of Munitions whether the War Office were consulted before the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) Order was applied to London; and whether they expressed their concurrence in the Order?
§ The MINISTER Of MUNITIONS (Mr. Lloyd George)
A draft of the London Order was sent to the War Office by the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) with a request for their observations upon it. On 13th November a reply was received from the War Office to the effect that the Army Council concurred in the terms of the Draft Closing Order.
§ Mr. W. THORNE
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that when this Order was made compulsory very few Members of this House protested against it?
