§ 42. Earl CASTLE STEWART
asked the Home Secretary whether he can furnish a statement which will show the hours beyond which it is illegal to offer for sale in retail shops or premises articles of general consumption?
§ Sir H. SAMUEL
The answer to this question would involve a detailed statement of the provisions of the law which are embodied in the Shops Act, 1912, and the Shops (Hours of Closing) Act, 1928, and I can only refer the Noble Lord to the provisions of those Statutes.
§ Earl CASTLE STEWART
Can the right hon. Gentleman say whether he intends to introduce legislation on this matter?
