§ 13. Mr. HANNON
asked the Home Secretary the number of cases in which proceedings were taken against persons for the illegal sale of intoxicating liquors in England, Scotland, and Wales, respectively, during the year 1923?
Table V of the Licensing Statistics for 1923, to which I referred in my answer to the hon. Member's preceding question, will show that proceedings against licensed persons for the offences indicated in the Table totalled 1,034 in England, and 282 in Wales. As regards Scotland, I must refer the hon. Member to my right hon. Friend the Secretary for Scotland for any information available.
§ Mr. STURROCK
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that a great many of the cases in Scotland are due to the operation of the Scottish Temperance Act?
