HC Deb 13 July 1950 vol 477 c120W
79. Mr. Houghton

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department to what extent a gill is a recognised measure for the sale of spirituous liquors in licensed premises in England under his control.

Mr. Ede

The gill is not used as a measure in the Carlisle State Management District. The measures used for the on-sale of spirits are one fluid ounce for a small glass and two for a large glass. The bottle used for off-sales of spirits is the standard bottle in use in the licensed trade and contains one-sixth of a gallon.
