Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) Bill. (6 Mar 1936)

Mr Gilbert Gledhill: If that is the Act, I am perfectly willing to let it stand and to exclude Wales from the provisions of of my Bill. I come to the Clause dealing with clubs, and on this point, I think that there will be rather more general agreement. There has been, as. hon. Members know, a very great outcry against the one-man club. In my constituency a few years ago we had one of these particular things. It...

Orders of the Day — Licensing (Amendment) Bill. (6 Mar 1936)

Mr Gilbert Gledhill: Its sole object was to sell drink, and eventually it came under the notice of the police and was closed down. No doubt hon.

I think that most of these clubs are a sort of stage army; they march on and off the register, and come on again under different titles, their one purpose being the sale of drink exclusively. Under the...

Mr Gilbert Gledhill: As the duly elected representative of the county borough of Halifax I am anxious to support this Bill, and, therefore, I am speaking against the Motion so ably moved by my hon.

Orders of the Day — HALIFAX EXTENSION BILL [Lords] (By Order). (3 Jul 1935)

Mr Gilbert Gledhill: I accept that statement. Joking apart, what is the real issue? The question is the extension of the borough.
