HC Deb 12 April 1937 vol 322 c631W
Mr. C. Wilson

asked the Home Secretary whether he will undertake to re-include in the next publication of the annual licensing statistics a statement showing the conditions in respect of monopoly, value, etc., under which licences are granted, with a description of licences from the point of view of their partial or annual currency?

Mr. Lloyd

As I explained in reply to a previous question on this subject, it is thought that the licensing statistics in their abridged form retain all the information which is of general interest and importance, and my right hon. Friend is aware of no sufficient ground for restoring the detailed information in respect of individual licences to which the hon. Member refers. As regards the question of the currency of licences, the hon. Member will see that additional information on this subject has been inserted in Table IVA of the Licensing Statistics, 1935.
