53. Captain TERRELL
asked the Prime Minister whether, in view of the varying criticisms regarding the adoption of summer time, he proposes to appoint a Committee to investigate its operation, so as to arrive at what should be a definite permanent policy on the whole subject?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Shortt)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. Very few criticisms have reached the Home Office for a long time past, and it is believed that the general feeling is strongly in favour of the continuance of the system. If any further representations on the subject are submitted, they will of course be carefully considered by the Government, but as at present advised I see no occasion for a further inquiry.
