§ MR. T. F. RICHARDS (Wolverhampton, W.)
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he is aware that the Inland Revenue officer for the Loughborough district has granted an occasional licence for the sale of drink for more than three days at any one time; and whether he will call the attention of the Commissioners of Inland Revenue to the violation of the Revenue Act of 1862.
§ MR. ASQUITH
Occasional licences have been granted by this officer for periods of six days under the Act 26 and 27 Vict., Cap. 33, Section 19, which amended the Act of 1862 by substituting six days for three as the period for which an occasional licence might be granted.
