asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he will set in train a revision of the licensing laws in view of mounting dissatisfaction, particularly in relation to tourism.

Mr. Gordon Campbell

I have decided that it would be appropriate to have a general review of the licensing law of Scotland; and that I should establish a committee of inquiry with the following terms of referenceTo review the liquor licensing law of Scotland and to make recommendations on what changes, if any, might be made in the public interest; and to report.
