HL Deb 24 November 1908 vol 197 c25

My Lords, I beg to give notice that on the Motion for the Second Heading of the Licensing Bill I shall move an Amendment in the following terms: "That this House, while ready to consider favourably any Amendments which experience has shown to be necessary in the law regulating the sale of intoxicating liquors, declines to proceed further with a measure which, without materially advancing the cause of temperance, would occasion grave inconvenience to many of His Majesty's subjects and violate every principle of equity in its dealings with the numerous classes whose interests will be effected by the Bill."
