§ 49. Mr. MACQUISTEN
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of large attendances of the public at football matches on Saturday afternoons who desire refreshment before going to the fields where such matches are played, and who have not accommodation in their homes to store supplies, and therefore cannot get any refreshment till four o'clock on these days, he will take steps to afford the same opportunities on Saturdays for the people's refreshment as on other weekdays?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of MUNITIONS (Mr. James Hope)
The Central Control Board have no evidence from the districts concerned of any general desire for the change proposed.
§ Mr. MACQUISTEN
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that these restrictions, which only affect the working classes, cause great irritation and a good deal of labour unrest, and that they believe that they were passed by the first Government to cover their failure to supply munitions?
