§ 30. Mr. RHYS DAVIES
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to evasions and abuses 1392 of the provisions of the Hairdressers' Act, particularly in London; and, if so, will he take immediate steps to put a stop to them?
§ Mr. LLOYD
My right hon. Friend has no power to intervene in this matter, but as the hon. Member is aware, the Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill, which is at present under consideration in Standing Committee, provides for the repeal of the section of the Act which has given rise to complaint, and the substitution for it of a provision containing much stronger safeguards against abuse.
