HC Deb 13 February 1939 vol 343 c1393W
Sir A. Wilson

asked the Home Secretary whether his attention has been drawn to the views expressed by the Lord Chief Justice, on 19th January, as to the loose and obscure wording of parts of the Sunday Trading Restriction Act; and whether he will consider the appointment of a committee to amend and consolidate the whole of the existing enactments on this subject, some of which date from the Elizabethan and Jacobean periods?

Mr. Lloyd

I have seen reports of the High Court case to which my hon. and gallant Friend refers. Any question of amending and consolidating the law relating to Sunday Trading must be deferred until further experience has been gained of the working of the recent Sunday Trading Restriction Act.
