§ 29. Captain R. TERRELL
asked the Home Secretary whether the authorities still have orders to prosecute in all cases of treating in respect of the consumption of drink; how many successful and unsuccessful prosecutions, respectively, there have been in the last six months; whether he will now consider the desirability of the complete revocation of the Order; and whether he will state the views of his police advisers on the subject?
§ Mr. SHORTT
It is the duty of the police to enforce the No Treating Order. Separate statistics in regard to its enforcement are not available. It does not lie with me to revoke the Order, but I am 2214 informed that the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) are watching very carefully the working of this, and they are in close touch with the police.
