§ 62. Sir W. MITCHELL - THOMSON
asked the Financial Secretary to the Treasury whether, having regard to the Government's decision as to Gretna and to the distance of more than 20 miles which separates Annan from Carlisle, it is still proposed to retain the town of Annan within the area of operations of the Carlisle Liquor Control?
The SECRETARY for SCOTLAND (Mr. William Adamson)
I have been asked to reply. Under the provisions of the Licensing Act, 1921, which transferred the schemes of State Management to the 2238 Secretary of State in England and the Secretary for Scotland in Scotland, the Burgh of Annan is not included within the Carlisle District, but forms part of the Gretna District, as defined in the Second Schedule to the Act. It is not proposed to alter the existing arrangements.
§ Sir W. MITCHELL-THOMSON
Will the right hon. Gentleman consider taking the opinion of the inhabitants of Annan?
