HC Deb 28 June 1976 vol 914 cc5-6W
Mr. Monro

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland (1) how many search warrants have been issued to the police in each of the last three years in order that they may search private clubs;

(2) how many prosecutions have been taken out against private clubs in each of the last three years for contraventions of the Licensing Acts.

Mr. Harry Ewing

I regret that information about the number of warrants issued under Section 179 of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 1959 is not available. The numbers of persons proceeded against for offences against alcoholic liquor laws in connection with clubs in 1972, 1973 and 1974 were 15, 4 and 13 respectively. The number for 1975 is not yet available.
