HC Deb 31 July 1912 vol 41 cc2081-2W

asked the Secretary for Scotland if he has received a representation from clubs in Glasgow, including the Glasgow Liberal Club, protesting against Clause 10 of the Temperance (Scotland) Bill; and, if so, whether it is his intention to give effect to the desires of the members of the Glasgow Liberal Club, numbering 1,205, or to the Clause introduced and carried in the Scottish Standing Committee and supported by both Scottish and English Liberal Members?


I have received petitions and representations of the character referred to from both Liberal and Conservative Clubs and from a number of workmen's clubs in Glasgow. The intention of the Government will be stated at the usual time, when the discussion on the Report stage of the Bill takes place.
