HC Deb 18 June 1973 vol 858 c34W
53. Mr. Patrick McNair-Wilson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he is satisfied with the operation of legislation governing takeaway food shops, bearing in mind the nuisance which these establishments create in certain areas particularly late at night.

Mr. Lane

Complaints have been caused by the late hours kept by certain of these shops and the lack of any legal powers to prevent this; but I can see little early prospect of legislation on the matter.
