HC Deb 18 March 1925 vol 181 cc2257-8
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- 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.
