HC Deb 03 April 1922 vol 152 c1876W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Home Secretary whether he will issue a circular to licensing magistrates suggesting that, in the public interest and in view of the introduction of summer time, they should, where possible, agree to alter the evening hours of Sunday opening of public-houses by postponing the opening one hour and permitting closing to take place one hour later than normal, thus permitting the public to take advantage of the fine summer weather and to obtain the necessary refreshment on their way home at night?


I do not think I can properly take the course suggested.
