§ Mr. Thurnham
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received about proposals in the Queen's Speech for which he has responsibility; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Hurd
I have no doubt that the proposals in the Queen's Speech for which I am responsible are broadly welcomed by most people. The proposal to introduce legislation to give greater flexibility in licensing hours has been criticised in some letters received in my Department and supported in others.
