HC Deb 20 November 1958 vol 595 cc187-8W
76. Mr. Nabarro

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will state the inventory value, at the conclusion of the last chargeable accounting period, of the State-owned public house and associated undertakings in Carlisle; what was the estimated market value at that date for all the assets concerned; and what is the future policy of Her Majesty's Government in regard to ownership of breweries and public houses.

Mr. R. A. Butler

At the 31st March, 1958, the inventory value of the Carlisle undertaking was £918,474. No estimate has been made of the current market value of the undertaking's assets. Her Majesty's Government have no intention of extending State management to other areas.
