HC Deb 09 March 1938 vol 332 c1895
70. Mr. De la Bère

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce legislation with a view to the codification of the existing licensing laws?

The Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department (Mr. Geoffrey Lloyd)

I am afraid I cannot hold out any prospect of such legislation being undertaken at present.

Mr. De la Bère

Is my hon. Friend aware of the widespread chaos, confusion and ineptitude which exist at the present time?
