HC Deb 26 October 1916 vol 86 c1295

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, in view of the urgency for thrift and the effect on thrift attained under the No-Treating Order, he would take measures to have the importance of the strict execution of this Order brought home to magistrates and the police?


As each Order of the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) containing the "no-treating" provision has been made, circulars have been issued to the police by my Department drawing special attention to this provision. Circulars also go to the magistrates; and I have every reason to believe that all concerned are fully alive to the importance of enforcing this Regulation.
