HC Deb 22 December 1919 vol 123 c1038W
Colonel ASHLEY

asked the Prime Minister whether he is aware that the Liquor Control Order for the Eastern area, dated 24th August, 1916, and which is still in force, stipulates that wine, spirits, and beer shall be paid for before delivery, except to a licensed trader or club; and will he state why officers' and sergeants' messes are not also exempted in view of their monthly settlement, which obtained previously and which is provided for in King's Regulations?


I understand that the arrangement in question was made in agreement with the War Office, but I shall have inquiry made to see if any practical inconvenience results from it.
