§ 81. Mr. SAMUEL SAMUEL
asked the Home Secretary whether, seeing that justices interested in the brewing trades are not permitted to serve on licensing benches, he will secure a similar prohibition against members of temperance associations or other bodies working for prohibition or local veto sitting, in view of the difficulty that must accrue to their consciences to give unbiased decisions?
§ Mr. SHORTT
Justices interested in the brewing trade are prohibited from serving on licensing benches in the district in which they brew or in the adjoining districts, but in any case I cannot adopt the suggestion in the latter part of the question.
