§ 61. Mr. ADAMSON
asked the Lord Privy Seal whether a prohibition has been placed upon the entry into this country of American temperance advocates and American temperance literature; whether he is aware that the Rev. D. M. Gandier, California, and Miss Anna Gordon desired to leave America for Scotland to participate in a local option campaign, but were refused passports, the explanation given being that the British authorities did not desire the presence of temperance agitators; and whether, if this is correct, he will give the reasons for this policy on the part of the Government?
§ Mr. BONAR LAW
The Government have no information on this subject, which was one entirely for the American authorities.
