asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether licences for the sale of tobacco and cigarettes are granted to holders of coffee stalls; and, if so, whether he will state on what grounds a licence for the sale of these articles has been refused to a disabled ex-service man, i.e., Frederick Hyatt, late corporal in the Rifle Brigade, of 65, Lyon Park Avenue, Wembley, who has invested the whole of his small savings in this business?

The question whether tobacco-dealers' licences can be issued in respect of coffee stalls depends on various considerations, such as the nature of the stall and the proposed hours of sale. As regards the case of Frederick Hyatt, I am having inquiry made into the matter, and I will communicate with the hon. Member in due course.
