§ 14. Captain R. TERRELL
asked the Home Secretary whether be will consider the withdrawal of the restrictions as to the sale of intoxicants on Saturday afternoons so as to enable participants in out door sports to obtain refreshments?
§ The PARLIAMENTARY SECRETARY to the MINISTRY of MUNITIONS (Mr. James Hope)
As recently as Monday last the Central Control Board have made an Order, which will take effect next week, relaxing a number of the current restrictions on the sale and supply of intoxicating liquor. The relaxation suggested by the hon. Member would go considerably beyond those recently announced, and I understand that the Central Control Board do not see their way to concede it.
§ Captain TERRELL
May I ask the hon. Gentleman if he can give the House his reasons for this decision?
