HC Deb 30 July 1975 vol 896 cc526-7W
Mr. Geoffrey Finsberg

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he proposes to introduce legislation to allow children to enter bars in public houses at the age of 14 years.

Dr. Summerskill

The prohibition in Section 168(1) of the Licensing Act 1964 on the presence of children in bars is confined to children under 14. There is, therefore, no need to introduce legislation for the purpose referred to by the hon. Member.
