§ 42. Mr. Graham White
asked the President of the Board of Trade whether further consideration has been given to the proposal for a census of distributive trades; and whether it is now proposed to do anything in the matter.
I fear I can add nothing to the statements made on this subject on previous occasions and would refer the hon. Member in particular to the observations of the Parliamentary Secretary to the Board of Trade in the Debate on 29th January last on the Shops (Retail Trading Safeguards) Bill.
