HC Deb 15 May 1924 vol 173 cc1576-7W

asked the Home Secretary if his attention has been called to the breaches of the law that are taking place daily in connection with the sale of ice cream; is he aware that ice cream is sold in theatres and other places of amusement, and in tea shops after the hour of 9.30 p.m. when it is not part of a meal; and if he will take steps to see that this law is enforced?


I have no information bearing out the allegations in the first two parts of the question, but the responsibility for the enforcement of the law in this matter rests with the local authorities and not with the Home Office.
