HC Deb 18 February 1920 vol 125 cc879-80
39. Mr. DOYLE

asked the Minister of Labour if his attention has been called to the practical establishment of the curfew system by certain large firms in the neighbourhood of St. Paul's Cathedral whereby the liberty of the subject is seriously threatened; and if he will consider the advisability of introducing a measure controlling and limiting the living-in system?

The MINISTER of LABOUR (Sir R. Home)

No representations have been made to the Department on this mater, but I have seen reports in the public Press. It appears that the particular difficulty has now been satisfactorily settled. Legislation does not appear to be necessary.

Sir J. D. REES

May not a man shut his door when he likes, even if he lives in St. Paul's Churchyard?
