HC Deb 02 June 1938 vol 336 c2231
64 Major Procter

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether the excise authorities have recently considered whether the organisers of bottle parties should be liable to excise payments on the same lines as other purveyors of alcohol; and, if not, whether he will arrange for this matter to be reviewed at an early date, in view of the increasing tendency to sell alcohol through this channel instead of through the medium of properly licensed establishments?

Captain Wallace

I would refer to the reply which I gave yesterday to my hon. and gallant Friend the Member for South Cardiff (Captain A. Evans).

Mr. McEntee

What is a bottle party?
