HC Deb 15 June 1927 vol 207 c1016W

asked the Home Secretary if he is aware that the State control authorities in Carlisle have forbidden chorus-singing in houses under their control in the Carlisle area; and whether, having regard to the recent. Report of the Commission on Disinterested Management of Public Houses, he proposes to take any action in the matter?


There is no general rule or order in force in the State-owned premises in Carlisle forbidding chorus-singing, but recently in order to preserve good order and to meet the wishes of the general body of customers, notices were posted in only two of the houses to the effect that chorus-singing would not be allowed.
