§ Colonel WEDGWOOD
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the action of the Stipendiary Magistrate at the West Ham Police Court, on 12th January, in dismissing summonses against licensees of a public-house for permitting a child to be on licensed premises on the ground that the Act was not meant to apply to children in arms; and whether the law will be amended to clear up any doubts that may exist on the subject?271W
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
I would refer the hon. and gallant Member to the answer which I gave on the 12th February last to the hon. Member for Stratford (Mr. Groves).
