HC Deb 17 February 1949 vol 461 c182W
15. Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what approaches have been made to him by local authorities to introduce legislation to repeal the Lord's Day Observance Acts; and what action he proposes to take.

Mr. Ede

An association representing the local authorities of certain holiday resorts, and the local authority of one of these resorts, made representations to me last summer urging that the law relating to Sunday entertainments should be amended. I carefully considered the representations but was unable to hold out any prospect of the early introduction of amending legislation on this controversial subject.
