§ 16. Mr. GEORGE ROBERTS
asked the Chief Secretary whether the urban council of Longford have taken no steps to secure the due observance of the provisions of the Shops Act; and whether he will take action in the matter?
§ Mr. BIRRELL
I am informed that the Longford Urban District Council have taken the first step to enforce the provisions of the Act by appointing an inspector. If further steps are not taken by the council within a reasonable time to put the Act into operation proceedings will be taken to compel them to do so.
