§ 9. Mr. McELWEE
asked the Secretary of State for Scotland if he has received the medical report on red biddy; will he reveal its contents to the House; whether he has found that red biddy is produced in any other place than Leith; and whether it is consumed in districts other than the West of Scotland?
Mr. W. ADAMSON
The medical investigation into the effect upon consumers of cheap red wine, and of such wine when mixed with methylated or other spirits, will take some time. I am informed that red wine is manufactured at Cleland and at Perth as well as at Leith, and that the consumption of red wine, whether by itself or mixed with other ingredients is not limited to the West of Scotland.
§ Mr. ERNEST BROWN
Has the right hon. Gentleman any evidence to prove that red biddy is manufactured in the Hulme Division of Manchester or in Middlesbrough?
§ Sir NICHOLAS GRATTAN-DOYLE
Is it not a perfectly easy matter to have red biddy analysed and to let us know the result?
