HC Deb 11 July 1946 vol 425 c113W
84. Mr. G. Jeger

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will take action to terminate the compulsory serving of sandwiches when drinks arc sold in catering establishments.

Mr. Ede

I think my hon. Friend must have in mind Section 3 of the Licensing Act, 1921, which allows an extra hour for the sale of drinks with meals. I am informed that the Metropolitan Police are not aware of any recent instances of the use of this provision in connection with the sale of sandwiches.
