HC Deb 07 February 1929 vol 224 c1969W
Commander SOUTHBY

asked the Home Secretary whether the Government will consider the question of making arrangements whereby the hours of opening and closing licensed premises shall be settled by the Government for the country as a whole, observing the anomalous position which now arises in many districts through the decision being left to the various local benches?


Such a change would require legislation, and there would certainly be diverse opinions on the point raised.
