HC Deb 17 January 1974 vol 867 c139W
33. Mr. Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he will introduce legislation to repeal the Sunday Observance Acts in view of the widespread support shown for Sunday football.

Mr. Carlisle

There are conflicting views about such a change and my right hon. Friend believes that the policy of successive Governments, to leave such matters to Private Members' legislation, should be maintained.
