HC Deb 01 April 1908 vol 187 c518

I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he would consider the advisability of inserting in the Licensing Bill a clause to show conclusively that temperance clubs in which no alcoholic liquor is sold will be excluded from the purview of the Bill.


Part IV. of the Bill deals only with clubs which are registered under the Licensing Act, 1902. Such registration is only required when it is desired that alcoholic drinks should be supplied upon the club premises, and, thus, clubs which do not seek the privilege of supplying liquor are in no way affected by the Bill.
