§ 34. Viscount CURZON
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he is now prepared to take any action with reference to the licensing of touring theatrical managers on the lines suggested by the London County Council?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Shortt)
I am afraid I do not see my way to introduce legislation requiring the licensing of touring theatrical managers
§ Sir R. COOPER
Does the right hon. Gentleman not realise the enormous injury that is going on under the present system? Can he not take some further steps to safeguard the best interests of the country in this matter?
§ Mr. SHORTT
The matter is being considered and consultation is going on with the theatrical representatives.
