§ "This Act, except so far as it applies to pre-packed articles of food, shall apply only to retail dealings."—[Sir P. Cunliff -Lister.]
§ Brought up, and read the First time.
§ Sir P. CUNLIFFE-LISTER
I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time."
I went very fully on the Second Reading into the. reasons why I thought it impracticable to extend the Act to the whole-sale trade. I am sure the Committee will acquit me of discourtesy if I do not repeat the arguments I used then.
§ Clause read a Second time, and added to the Bill.
