HC Deb 26 July 1939 vol 230 cc1628-9W
Sir W. de FRECE

asked the Home Secretary whether any arrangements are being made by his Department to ensure that proper effect will be given to Section 6 of the Shops (House of Closing) Act, 1928?


The section does not contemplate any intervention by His Majesty's Government. The orders are made by the local authorities on the application of the shopkeepers concerned and, where such orders are made, they do not require to be submitted to me or any other Minister for confirmation.
