HC Deb 27 May 1936 vol 312 c2013

asked the Attorney-General whether he has further considered the communications made to him regarding the intended action by the Hotels and Restaurants Association, the Champagne Association, the Wine Merchants' Union, or any other trade organisation, with a view to stopping the practice of paying corkage to wine waiters?


The only information I have is that contained in the printed matter which my hon. Friend sent me on 28th April, and in regard to which I gave an answer on 4th May. As stated in one of the documents which my hon. Friend sent to me, the matter is really one for the wine merchants themselves to determine.
