HC Deb 25 April 1929 vol 227 c1027
1. Mr. DAY

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received any representations asking him to consider amending the present legislation so as to give theatres and variety halls holding music and dancing licences the same privileges of Sunday opening as at present exist and are granted in the London area to cinemas; and can he state what has been his reply?

The SECRETARY of STATE for the HOME DEPARTMENT (Sir William Joynson-Hicks)

The answer to the first part of the question is in the negative, and the second therefore does not arise.


Has the right hon. Gentleman been asked to receive a deputation from the managers on the subject?


When I say "no," such request has not come before me.
