HC Deb 01 February 1949 vol 460 c223W
Sir W. Darling

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department the number of licensed premises in England and Wales, respectively, having an on-licence only, an off-licence only and both an on-and off-licence.

Mr. Ede

The following table, which relates to the position at 31st December, 1947, gives the information available:

Number of licensed premises having
An off-licence only An on-licence
England 21,389 69,056
Wales 459 4,176

An on-licence authorises off-sales also, except where an undertaking has been given, or a condition imposed, to the contrary. I am not in a position to say in how many cases this has occurred.
