HC Deb 16 March 1922 vol 151 cc2402-3W

asked the Home Secretary whether, in any future legislation affecting the general early closing of shops and the permission to keep open an hour later on any day in the week, he will take into consideration representations made by traders and others that power should be given to local authorities to fix the later closing hour in the week on such evening as they think fit, according to local needs or other conditions?


Yes, Sir. This suggestion has already been noted for consideration.
