§ 54. Mr. ROBERT RICHARDSON
asked the Prime Minister if it is with the consent of the Government that the Board of Liquor Control Order of 12th February last, prohibiting the formation of any clubs in Carlisle without the sanction of the Board, was made; and if he will say how many members of the Board were present when the order was made?
§ The DEPUTY-MINISTER of MUNITIONS (Mr. Kellaway)
I have been asked to reply. I have nothing further to add to the replies that I gave on Monday to the hon. Member for Silvertown and on Wednesday to the hon. Member for West Nottingham.
§ Mr. RICHARDSON
Does the hon. Gentleman not know that the most sober-town in England, Coventry, has more clubs per head of the population than any town in the United Kingdom?
§ Mr. THORNE
We want to know their policy in regard to this body. They want to dissolve themselves as speedily as possible.
§ Mr. BILLING
Will the hon. Member consider the advisability of removing beer from their control, as the beer at present brewed is neither liquor nor alcohol?
