§ MR. HUDSON (Newcastle-on-Tyne)
To ask the Prime Minister if he will consider the claims of employees who are to be displaced during the reduction period of licensed houses; and whether he can, under the compensation clauses of the Licensing Bill, secure to these workpeople, who have lost their employment through the closing of unnecessary houses, a sum of not less than six months wages.
(Answered by Mr. Asquith.) I am afraid that it is not practicable to make any satisfactory provision for these cases.
