As regards the second part of the question, for Carlisle the convictions for drunkenness in the fourteen weeks since the middle of July, about which time the Board's scheme of direct control began to be put into effective operation, have reached a total of 183. For the immediately preceding fourteen weeks the total was 380.—[See Written Answers.]
