§ 60. Colonel GRETTON
asked the Minister of Munitions if the sanction of Parliament will be asked for the purchase of the breweries and licensed trade in the Carlisle area; and if the price to be paid will be submitted to the approval of Parliament?
§ Dr. ADDISON
The purchase referred to and the question of the price to be paid are fully covered by the Defence of the Realm (Amendment—No. 3) Act, the Defence of the Realm (Liquor Control) Regulations, and the terms of reference to the Defence of the Realm (Losses) Royal Commission. Parliament can, of course, express its opinion when the Vote for the Ministry of Munitions is under its consideration.
