Control of Spirit


    FOLLOWING the introduction of prohibition in Bombay, the Government has restricted sales, advertising and general dealing in all spirituous preparations containing more than 2 per cent by volume of alcohol. Recently, however, the Bombay Government has entirely exempted all toilet and cosmetic preparations containing alcohol from the prohibition regulations. It has also set up a Classification Committee to decide whether preparations which contain more than 2 per cent of alcohol can be used as beverages or not.
