HC Deb 21 April 1890 vol 343 c974
MR. ALFRED THOMAS (Glamorgan, E.)

I bag to ask the First Lord of the Treasury what action the Government purpose taking on the Report of the Commission appointed to inquire into the operation of "The Sunday Closing (Wales) Act, 1881?"


The Government have considered the Report; but the hon. Gentleman will not, I think, be surprised to hear that we do not propose to recommend Parliament to take any step upon it at an early date. Having regard to the amount of business now before the House, we should hardly be justified in introducing a measure for dealing with Sunday Closing in Wales this Session.

SIR W. LAWSON (Cumberland, Cockermouth)

Does the right hon. Gentleman intend to recommend that a vote of thanks should be passed to the Commissioners for their impartial conduct?

[No reply.]
