HC Deb 23 November 2000 vol 357 c291W
Mr. Grogan

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what plans he has to introduce a deregulation order relating to extended hours for restaurants. [140244]

Mr. Mike O'Brien

We hope to lay a draft deregulation order early in the new year, taking account of the comments made on the consultation document which we published earlier this year and of the outcome of proceedings on the Sunday dancing deregulation proposal, which raises some parallel issues.
