HC Deb 20 March 1922 vol 152 c46
86. Sir C. HIGHAM

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the existence in London of disreputable night clubs, where a secret traffic exists in drugs and where alcoholic liquors are obtainable after closing hours; and whether, in view of the evil effects on the young men and women who frequent them, steps will be taken to ensure their suppression?


Whenever information is obtainable as to illegal practices in clubs, whether in contravention of the law as to sale of intoxicating liquor or of the Regulations as to dangerous drugs or otherwise, the police are alert to take action. Convictions have been obtained in two recent cases.

Viscount CURZON

Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that certain hon. Members of this House are very much interested in certain night clubs?


No, I am not aware of that.
