§ MR. HERBERT LEWIS (Flint Boroughs)
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer, whether the provisions of Section 7 of the Act 35 Geo. III. cap. 113 (relative to the registration with the Excise of all places intended to be used for the keeping or selling of beer) are now enforced by the Excise authorities, and, if so, whether the entries made pursuant thereto set forth with the particularity required by the Statute the room or rooms in licensed premises used for such purposes; whether he has any objection to state the precise form in which the entries prescribed by this Section are made with the Excise throughout the country; and, under what statutory or other authority, and subject to what regulations, the sale of intoxicating liquors is now carried on in trains on the railways of the country?
§ THE CHANCELLOR OF THE EXCHEQUER
The provisions of Section 7 of the Act 35 Geo. III. cap 113 (relative to the registration with the Excise of all places intended to be used for the keeping or selling of beer) are still in force. The form of entry used can be furnished to the hon. Member if he desires it. There is no statutory authority for the sale of intoxicating liquors in railway trains.
