HC Deb 07 August 1919 vol 119 c538
56. Sir P. GOFF

asked the Prime Minister whether, in the constitution of the Commission which it is proposed to set up to replace the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic), the Government will consider the desirability of appointing representatives of the leading sections of the-trade in order that men of practical experience may tender advice on the questions involved?

Mr. BONAR LAW (Leader of the House)

The hon. Member's suggestion, will be borne in mind.


Is my right hon. Friend not of opinion that persons having trade interests should appear as witnesses rather than be members of a Commission which may make decisions or recommendations?


All I mean by the answer is that we do consider it is the duty of the Government to make sure that the views of those mentioned in the question are considered.
