HC Deb 08 May 1912 vol 38 c542W

asked the Home Secretary whether he has received a petition with respect to the case of William Henry Green, late of the Crown Inn, Totley, Derbyshire; whether he has caused inquiry to be made into the circumstances under which a licence was refused; and what is the result of such inquiry?


My attention was called to this matter some time ago, and though it is not one in which I had any power to intervene, I caused inquires to be made and formed the opinion that the action of the Derbyshire police, which was alleged to be the main cause of the refusal of the Worksop licensing bench to grant a licence in their district to the ex-licensee of the Crown Inn, had been perfectly proper.
