HC Deb 24 March 1920 vol 127 c416

asked the Attorney-General whether the advice of the Law Officers of the Crown was sought by the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) with regard to its Order of 12th February, 1920, prohibiting the consumption of intoxicants in any club henceforth to be formed in the city of Carlisle; and whether the Board was advised that such an Order came within its powers?

The ATTORNEY-GENERAL (Sir Gordon Hewart)

I am informed and believe that the effect of the Central Control Board's Order is not accurately stated in the first part of the question. Subject to this observation, the reply to the first part is in the negative, and to the second in the affirmative.
