§ 47. Mr. DIXEY
asked the Prime Minister, whether he is aware of the hardship suffered by a large section of the travelling public owing to the aboli- 2258 tion of the bona-fide traveller clause of the Licensing Acts; whether representations have been made to him on the matter; and what steps does he propose to take?
§ The UNDER-SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Mr. G. Locker-Lampson)
I have been asked to reply to this question. I do not think that the repeal of the statutory provisions relating to the bona-fide traveller has involved any substantial hardship to the travelling public, and there does not seem to be any sufficient reason for reviving them.
