HC Deb 16 July 1923 vol 166 cc1884-5W
Colonel MERCER

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been called to the hardship entailed on country innkeepers because of the restricted hours their houses are allowed to keep open; and if he will consider whether the pre-War hours, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m., can be returned to?


My right hon. Friend is not clear what is the precise alteration which the hon. Member desires, but at present he has no general evidence in favour of any change which cannot be dealt with by local licensing authorities.
