HC Deb 20 December 1935 vol 307 cc2161-2W

asked the Home Secretary whether he will give the number of licensed houses, the number of on-licences, and the number of off-licences, respectively, in the petty sessional divisions, non-county boroughs, and county boroughs, including London, in England and Wales, respectively, together with similar figures for pre-1869 beer houses, registered clubs, retailers without justices' licences and theatres?


I would refer the hon. Member to the recently published Licensing Statistics for 1934, on page 25 of which are given the detailed particulars for which he asks in respect of counties (excluding County Boroughs) and County Boroughs. Separate figures for Petty Sessional Divisions and Non-County Boroughs, under the six different heads specified in the Question, could not, I am afraid, be produced without a considerable expenditure of time and labour.
