HC Deb 16 March 1922 vol 151 c2403W

asked the Under-Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs if he has yet received from the British Ambassador to the United States a Report as to whether the loss from alcoholic liquors has been counterbalanced by revenue derived from the increased sale of other dutiable commodities, and also as to the effects of prohibition on business and social conditions in America?


His Majesty's Ambassador at Washington has been requested to state whether the United States Government has published any Report on the working of the Prohibition Laws in the United States. Sir Auckland Geddes' reply has not been received. Sir A. Geddes has not been asked to express an opinion on the business and social conditions resulting from prohibition in the United States of America.
