HC Deb 08 March 1956 vol 549 cc217-8W
54. Mr. J. Eden

asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer to issue small licences, such as gun and dog licences, for a period longer than for one year at a time, thereby saving in the cost of their administration and in the inconvenience caused to the public by annual renewal.

Mr. H. Brooke

Such a proposal would require legislation, and I do not think legislation would be justified.
