HC Deb 13 December 1926 vol 200 cc2693-4

"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.


I beg to move, "That the Clause be read a Second time."

10.0 P.M.

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.
