§ 16. Sir ROBERT THOMAS
asked the Home Secretary whether, having regard to the fact that some 250,000 shops are open in this country every Sunday and that about 2,000,000 people are involved, is it his intention to introduce within the lifetime of the present Parliament a Bill dealing with Sunday trading?
§ Sir W. JOYNSON-HICKS
For the reasons which I have explained on several previous occasions, the Government do not feel that they are in the position to propose legislation on the subject.
§ Sir R. THOMAS
Is the right hon. Gentleman aware that the country generally has formed an opinion that he is of a frivolous turn of mind?
