HC Deb 21 June 1927 vol 207 c1684W
Brigadier-General CHARTERIS

asked the Secretary of State for Scotland whether he is prepared to take steps to extend to local authorities of rural areas in Scotland the power conferred on town councils by the Burgh Police (Scotland) Act, 1903, of regulating the hours of opening of places of public amusement?


I am prepared to consider this proposal when an opportunity for legislation occurs, if it is limited to county councils and has the general support of county councils.
