Sir J. D. REES
asked the Minister of Food whether the manager under the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) of the Solway Hotel, Silloth, was fined £5 and costs for selling bottled beer at 9d. instead of 8½d., with the result that the Board made a profit of £41, which the chairman of the bench described as an unholy profit; and whether the Central Control Board is itself under any, and, if so, under what control?
§ Mr. McCURDY
I understand that the facts are substantially as stated in the first part of the question. As regard the latter part, separate estimates for the Liquor Control Board are presented to Parliament.
