HC Deb 06 December 1951 vol 494 cc277-8W
80. Mrs. Corbet

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department why meetings of his licensing advisory com- mittees for certain new towns arranged to take place soon were cancelled an 21st November; and to what extent changes in policy with regard to the State management of public houses in the new towns are envisaged.

Sir D. Maxwell Fyfe

The meetings in question were not cancelled by me or at my request. As regards the second part of the Question, I would refer the hon. Lady to the oral answer which I have given today to a question by the hon. Member for Epping (Mr. Finlay).
