HC Deb 19 February 1990 vol 167 c595W
Mr. Barry Field

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will take steps to compile statistics on how many licensing benches insist on a dry lounge in licensed hotels.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

No. It would not be practicable to compile statistics of the very many different types of conditions which licensing justices may attach when granting an on-licence; and we have no reason to suppose that licences granted under part IV of the Licensing Act 1964 do not normally have a "dry room" condition.
