§ 20. Lieut.-Colonel Wickham
asked the Home Secretary whether he is aware of the: very serious effect which any further extension of summer-time would have on food production in this country; and whether he can give an assurance that no such extension is contemplated?
§ Mr. H. Morrison
I am aware of the agricultural objections to any extension of summer-time, but I am not yet in a position to make any statement.
§ Lieut.-Colonel Wickham
Can my right hon. Friend state whether the House will be given an opportunity to debate this question before the final decision is taken?
§ Mr. Morrison
I hardly think so, Sir, but that, of course, would be a matter for the Leader of the House.
