§ 21. Captain ERSKINE-BOLST
asked the Home Secretary whether he proposes to introduce a Bill to regularise the extension of licensing hours at seaside resorts during the summer months, especially in view of the importance of this step to the well-being of such resorts?
§ Sir J. GILMOUR
I am not in a position at present to make any statement, but this question is receiving the close consideration of the Government, and there will be no avoidable delay in reaching a decision.
Was not the candidate at Hammersmith the great hero of extending the hours of drink and did he not get his answer?
§ Sir B. PETO
Will the right hon. Gentleman bear in mind that if we have arbitrarily lengthened the day in respect of the hours that the sun remains above the horizon in the evening, it is only reasonable that we should have the means of altering our habits in the matter of the consumption of drink or in other respects?
