The State Management Scheme

Recommended Posts

Belmont Road

Does anyone know any details of the State Management Scheme set up in 1916 to control the consumption of alcholol?

I am aware that it centred around the armaments factories near Gretna, Longtown and the Carlisle district.

What I am especially interested in is the level of compensation given to former landlords when the pubs were taken over.

Also were they re-employed to manage the business?

Many thanks,

Jack

If you enter "State Management Scheme 1916" into Google you will get a lot of information about it.

This is from the second report, published in 1916, of the Central Control Board (Liquor Traffic), appointed under The Defence of the Realm (Amendment) (No 3) Act, 1915:

It applies to premises in the State Management Districts.

The third report published in 1918 gives a considerable amount of detail on the activities of the Control Board in Carlisle and Gretna. It does not give actual figures as to compenstion only that a large number of licensed premises and breweries were acquired.

Thanks to both of you.

The web entries to not give the detail so I am grateful for the above. I can only assume that the amounts varied. Is there anywhere a criteria to determine the value of a given property/business?

Best wishes,

Jack
