§ Mr. R. RICHARDSON
asked the Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Munitions whether the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic) is considering the sals of its licensed houses or breweries, or both, in the Carlisle area to a member of the Board, or the firm of which he is a partner, or to any other purchaser?
§ Sir J. BAIRD
I am informed that a rumour to this effect has lately been spread in certain circles in Carlisle, and I am obliged to the hon. Member for1398W giving me this opportunity of saying that! it is without foundation.
