asked the Under-Secretary to the Scottish Board of Health whether he is aware that there is a. wholesale liquor licence in Stornoway, which is a prohibition area; and whether immediate steps can be taken to withdraw such licence, as the benefits of prohibition are being annulled thereby?

Mr. THOMSON:

I am aware that a "No Licence" resolution is in force in the Burgh of Stornoway, and I understand from Press reports that a wholesale excise licence is at present in force in Stornoway. The issue or withdrawal of such licences is not a matter in which the Secretary for Scotland has any powers.
