§ MR. EVELYN CECIL (Aston Manor)
I beg to ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will introduce a provision into the Licensing Bill to relieve the officials and Members of the House of Commons from the penalties they may be under for allowing illegal sales of intoxicating liquor on its premises.
§ MR. ASQUITH
The Bill does not alter the law in this respect, and I am 700 not aware of any sufficient reason for making a change.
§ MR. EVELYN CECIL
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the action of the officials and Members of this House finds a parallel in the action of certain clubs?
