More questions from the House…

Another one from Hansard. This time from the DUP’s successor to David Trimble, David Simpson, who asked:

the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland how many publicans in Northern Ireland were fined for selling short measures in each of the last 10 years. [38587]

Angela E. Smith: In the last 10 years, three publicans in Northern Ireland were fined for short measure offences: one in 1996 and two in 2005.

If you have any good stuff from Westminster, the Oireachtas, or your local council, drop us a line!
