§ 40. Viscount CURZON
asked the Prime Minister whether it is still intended to prohibit the sale of chocolates after 8 p.m.; and whether some relaxation of this War restriction can now be safely considered, in view of the intense desire of the country for a general relaxation of all such War restrictions?
§ The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. Shortt)
My right hon. Friend has asked me to reply to this question. The restriction referred to is now in force under the Shops (Early Closing) Act of last Session, and I have no power under that Act to relax it.
§ Viscount CURZON
Is he aware it has recently been decided that where a machine is provided they can be had at 587 any time, and will he take steps to see that the law is equally administered all round?
