HC Deb 10 December 1941 vol 376 c1539
88. Dr. Little

asked the Home Secretary whether he will consider promulgating a non-treating order, as in the last war, for the duration of the present war?

Mr. Peake

Conditions to-day are very different from those obtaining in the last war, and my right hon. Friend knows of no present circumstances calling for such a measure as my hon. Friend suggests.

Dr. Little

Does not my hon. Friend think that this matter ought to receive further attention, in the interests of our continued war effort?

Mr. Peake

There is no evidence of an unusual amount of drunkenness in the country at the present time.
