HC Deb 28 May 1919 vol 116 cc1209-10
45. Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Prime Minister why the War Cabinet still forbids the brewers to brew beer and supply it to the public under the same conditions as prevailed before the outbreak of war?


I would refer my hon. and gallant Friend to the answers which my right hon. Friend the Minister of Food gave to the hon. Member for Hanley on the 20th and 22nd of May last.

Colonel ASHLEY

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that many people most strongly object to the uncontrolled action of Lord D'Abernon and his nominated Board and desire that the supremacy of Parliament should be restored in regard to drink?


I dare say there is such a feeling. As I have already mentioned in the House, a Cabinet Committee is now considering the whole question of restriction.
