HC Deb 22 December 1916 vol 88 c1838W

asked the Minister of Munitions, as representing the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) whether, pending the settlement of the technical contention of the legal advisers of this Board whereby it is sought to evade payment of the awarded compensation in the case of the seized "Swan and Pike" inn at Enfield Lock, he will consent to place the money on deposit or invest it in Treasury securities in order that it may be earning interest?


The matter is under consideration.
