§ Mr. R. DAVIES
asked the Home Secretary how many orders extending shopping hours have been made under Section 6 of the Shops (Hours of Closing) Act, 1928; in what places the orders have been made; whether such orders apply to the whole or part of the shops situated in the area of the local authority concerned; and how many orders contained provisions protecting shop assistants from excessive hours of labour?
§ Sir H. SAMUEL
The orders made by the local authorities under this Section do not require to be submitted to me, and I regret that I am not in a position to furnish the information for which the hon. Member asks.
