– in the House of Commons on 17th February 1944.
Alert me about debates like this
asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he can now make a statement on the question of double summer time for this year.
No, Sir, but I hope to be in a position to do so very shortly.
Would the right hon. Gentleman be able to answer the question on a day during the next Series of Sittings?
I cannot be sure.
Has the attention of the Minister been drawn to the fact that, not only in agricultural circles, but in certain industrial circles, there is an objection to double summer time?
May I ask is the Minister aware that farmers object to double summer time, and whether, before coming to a final decision, he will consult the Minister of Agriculture?
The Minister of Agriculture is a constant consultant of mine on this subject, Sir.
