HC Deb 07 March 1938 vol 332 cc1540-1W
Mr. Rhys Davies

asked the Home Secretary the number of Orders issued giving the right to open cinemas on Sundays; how many such Orders have been utilised by cinema owners; and how many have abandoned the facilities granted under such Orders?

Mr. Lloyd

Since the Sunday Entertainments Act, 1932, came into operation 64 Orders empowering the licensing authority to allow cinemas to be opened on Sundays have been approved by Parliament. I regret that I have no information regarding the other parts of the question.
