§ Mr. Rhodes
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department whether he has received the report of the Departmental inquiry into shops legislation which was announced by his predecessor in the House of Commons on 23rd January, 1964; and what is the policy of Her Majesty's Government on this matter.
§ Sir F. Soskice
I am considering the replies to the inquiries made by my predecessor about the need for changes in the law relating to week-day trading in shops, together with the recommendations on Sunday trading made by the Departmental Committee on Sunday Observance. There is no prospect of legislation in the present Session.
