HC Deb 23 July 1918 vol 108 c1632
39. Colonel YATE

asked the Home Secretary whether, as it is not possible under present conditions to introduce the legislation which would be necessary to enforce a general regulation against serving intoxicating liquors in licensed houses to persons under the age of eighteen years, he will consider the question of the provision of tables and chairs and refreshments other than intoxicating liquors in licensed houses, so that young persons can find accommodation there without being compelled to stand at a drinking bar?


Though I agree in principle with the suggestion in the latter part of this question, I fear that there are no steps which I can take in the matter at present.
