HC Deb 21 January 1992 vol 202 c101W
Mr. Alton

To ask the Attorney-General when he received an invitation from Hull city council for him to join them in an enforcement action against illegal Sunday trading; and what was his response.

The Attorney-General

The town clerk and chief executive of Hull city council wrote to me on 11 September 1991 and 29 November 1991 and invited me to co-operate with local authorities in enforcing the provisions of the Shops Act 1950. He was informed on both occasions that I did not consider that it was appropriate for me at present to intervene. I explained my views in the answer which I gave to the private notice question from my hon. Friend the Member for Orpington (Mr. Stanbrook) on 27 November 1991 at column 913.
