To ask the Parliamentary Secretary, Lord Chancellor's Department what advice his Department gives to licensing magistrates on action to take against clubs, pubs and other licensed premises where smuggled or bootlegged tobacco and alcohol have been sold either by the licensee and staff or by customers. 
§ Jane Kennedy
The Lord Chancellor's Department has given no advice to licensing magistrates on action to take in the circumstances described. Guidance provided jointly by the Magistrates Association and the Justices' Clerks Society refers generally to the fitness of the applicant for a licence but not specifically to smuggled or bootlegged tobacco and alcohol.
