HC Deb 28 October 1919 vol 120 c467

asked the Prime Minister if he can now make any statement as to the policy of the Government in respect to the control of the liquor traffic, more especially in regard to the extension of hours during which alcohol can be sold; and whether he proposes to permit tobacco to be sold after 8 p.m.?


I would suggest that my hon. and gallant Friend should await the introduction of the Bill which the Government have promised to introduce dealing with the control of the liquor traffic. As regards the last part of the question, I would refer to the answer given by my right hon. Friend the Home Secretary, to a question on this subject on the 20th of March, to which I have nothing to add.
