Major Lloyd

asked the President of the Board of Trade the total number of licences issued since VJ-Day, to date, under the Location of Retail Businesses Order, distinguishing between individual unit traders, branches of multiple shops and co-operative societies, respectively; and the number of transfers of licences which have been made to multiple stores and co-operative societies from independent traders.

Sir S. Cripps

Figures of licences issued since VJ-Day are not readily available, but possibly the following figures for the months of August and September, 1945, will be of assistance to the hon. and gallant Member. Those for October are not yet available.
