HC Deb 10 December 1945 vol 417 cc162-3W
Mr. King

asked the President of the Board of Trade if he is aware that ex-Servicemen without means obtain trading licences only with great difficulty and are frequently refused them, whilst those with means can and do purchase them at excessive prices; and if he will remedy this situation.

Sir S. Cripps

Licences under the Location of Retail Businesses Order are not for sale. If my hon. Friend will let me have examples of what he has in mind, I will examine them.
