§ 37. Mr. Mander
asked the Home Secretary whether he has any statement to make with reference to the present carrying out of the lighting regulations; and whether he is satisfied that all necessary precautions are being taken by shops in connection with the scheme recently authorised?
§ Sir J. Anderson
I am satisfied that, speaking generally, the public fully realise the importance of the black-out, and have shown a commendable readiness to co-operate in maintaining it. I have, however, found it necessary, as the hon. Member is aware, to call attention to a rather widespread misinterpretation of the relaxation recently sanctioned in connection with the lighting of shops.
