HC Deb 08 August 1911 vol 29 c954

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether, seeing that a Sunday market has been in existence in the Broadway, London Fields, for about forty years, and that the district contains a large number of Jewish residents, he will consider the claims of the Broadway, London Fields, to be included in the area of exemption from the Sunday closing provisions of the Shops Bill?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Churchill)

I would point out to the hon. Member that under the Bill as amended by the Standing Committee the whole of the county of London is exempted up to two o'clock in the afternoon from the Sunday closing provisions of the Bill.
