HC Deb 03 July 1916 vol 83 cc1204-5
29. Mr. WING

asked the Minister of Munitions if, on taking over the licensed premises of any given area, he will in preparing schemes for refreshment for the people give the inhabitants an opportunity of expressing themselves on the elimination of intoxicating liquors in such districts?


It is the practice of the Board to take special measures for keeping in touch with local opinion in districts in which they take over licensed premises, and for acting in conformity with it so far as is consistent with the primary object for which the premises are taken over.
