I gave an answer two days ago that the subject is being gone into by a Cabinet Committee.

Has the right hon. Gentleman received a resolution from associations of clubs or fro many individual clubs, and if he cannot remove those restrictions referred to in the question can he see his way immediately to remove a number of them?

I have received a great many communications, and what my hon. Friend suggests is exactly what is being done now by the Cabinet Committee.

Is the right hon. Gentleman prepared to receive a deputation representing clubs?

I should be glad to do so if I thought any useful purpose would be served by doing so, but I think I understand their point of view.

Do I understand a decision will be given before a Bill for the prolongation of exceptional legislation is brought in?
