§ 13. Mr. Liddall
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will consider the request of the licensed trade to extend to them, free of cost to licence-holders, by Order in Council, the hours for the sale of excise-able beverages so as to cover the period 10 a.m. to 11 p.m. daily, except the Sunday, during Coronation week; and is he aware that the method by Order in Council, instead of by application to magisterial benches, will save expense and avoid variations of the terms of the permission to be granted in various localities?
§ The Secretary of State for the Home Department (Sir John Simon)
My hon. Friend is, I think, under some misapprehension. Extension of hours cannot be effected by Order in Council.
