HC Deb 09 July 1965 vol 715 cc325-6W
Mr. Hamling

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will seek powers to ensure that occasional licences for the sale of intoxicating liquor are not granted for such sales to take place in private houses.

Mr. George Thomas

My right hon. and learned Friend knows of no reason why the grant of occasional licences should not be left to the discretion of justices of the peace.
