HC Deb 08 June 1920 vol 130 c245W
Major M. WOOD

asked the Secretary for Scotland what steps he proposes to take to secure that the public-houses and other premises owned and occupied by the Central Control (Liquor Traffic) in Annan and other districts in Scotland, in respect of which no certificates have been issued by the licensing courts, shall be brought within the local option provisions of the Temperance (Scotland) Act and made subject to the popular vote at the polls in November and December of this year?


I am in consultation in this matter, which raises issues of considerable importance, with the Central Control Board and other Departments interested. The decision of the Government will be announced in due course.
