USE or Hop SUBSTITUTES.—In the House of Commons on Wednesday week, Mr Courthope asked leave to introduce a Bill to prohibit the use of hop substitutes in brewing. He ex- plained that matters which had proved con- tentious in previous measures had been entirely eliminated in the present Bill. Although he would like to see legislation compelling the marking of imported hops, he had dropped that provision. Also he had changed the wording of what might be called the prohibition clause, which in the past had been held to interfere with legitimate operations of the brewing in- dustry. As the clause now stood he thought that, while it would entirely prevent the use of any substitutes in brewing, it would not prevent the legitimate and necessary use of chemical substances for cleansing and disinfecting pur- poses. He gave figures to show that the use of substitutes was a growing practice, but declared that they were not used in any case by the better-class brewers, and the great bulk of the industry were quite prepared to see their use prohibited. The demand for this Bill was further supported by hop-growers and the trade. The Bill was brought in and read a firet time.
