HC Deb 11 November 1912 vol 43 c1730
70. Sir J. D. REES

asked whether the Home Secretary has received any, and, if so, what protests against the Shops Act; and what action he proposes to take to mitigate its effect?


I have received a certain number of suggestions for the amendment of the Act on points of detail, but no general protests against the main principles of the measure, except in the case of the refreshment houses. An amending Bill to meet the difficulty in that case is now before the House.
