§ 72. Mr. Mabane
asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the fact that this year Easter occurs within a week of the end of winter; whether he is aware of the difficulties this creates for manufacturers and distributors; and whether he will regard this latest example of the disadvantages of a variable Easter as a sufficient reason for recommending that an appointed day should at once be decided for the Easter Act?
§ Mr. Lloyd
I understand that Easter falls on 28th March this year. On the question of bringing into operation the Easter Act, 1928, I would refer my hon. Friend to the answer given to the hon. Member for the Colchester Division (Mr. Lewis) on 26th November last.
§ Mr. Mabane
Can my hon. Friend tell the House whether any further progress has been made at Geneva towards securing an international agreement on this topic; has there been any further discussion?
