HC Deb 18 February 1924 vol 169 c1380W

asked the Secretary for Scotland if he is aware that, prior to the local veto poll in the burgh of Eyemouth on the 11th December, 1923, the liquor trade issued a poster stating that the local chemist would he unable to supply spirits for medicinal purposes in the event of the area voting no licence; and will he take steps to make such action punishable in Scotland?


I have no information with regard to the first part of the question; and in any case I do not think that the publication of such a statement could properly be made a penal offence.
