Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Miscellaneous savings.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to ask leave to withdraw the Amendment, in order to move it in a different form. Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Miscellaneous savings.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in page 9, line 3, at the end, to insert "for the convenience of bona fide passengers."

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 8. — (Miscellaneous savings.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am uninfluenced by the threats of the law lords held over our heads, but in view of the appeals made and not wishing to intervene when doctors differ, I beg leave to withdraw the Amendment in the hope that the promoters of the Bill and the Home Secretary would consider the matter further and make any necessary alteration in another place. Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 9. — (Provisions respecting Shop Assistants.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I hope that the House will not agree to the modification suggested by the promoter of the Bill and assented to by the Mover of the Amendment. It is vital that the feeling of the House should be taken on the Amendment as it stands. I assure the hon. Member for Ogmore (Mr. E. J. Williams) that I should vote against it if I thought that anything we put into the Bill would have any effect upon...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 9. — (Provisions respecting Shop Assistants.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: My reply is that monopolies do not in practice sell farm produce. It is sold by farmer retailers.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 9. — (Provisions respecting Shop Assistants.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: Can my hon Friend say what communication has been received from the insurance committees?

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 9. — (Provisions respecting Shop Assistants.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I agree with the hon. Member for Westhoughton (Mr. Rhys Davies) that we ought to have further elucidation before we can reasonably vote in favour of this Amendment. The figures are by no means as clear as they have been represented to be. The Industry Census of 1931, which I have looked up, shows (at page 8) 20,000 people who classify themselves as chemists' assistants, and there are only...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 12. — (Extensions of provisions of this Act to retail trading else-where than in shops.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I think the hon. Member is under a misapprehension and that what he is referring to is the absence from Schedules 1 and 2 of these particular comestibles. However, I welcome the Amendment and accept it with some etymological doubts. I find it hard to believe that in our English language, which is so accurate, particularly in Acts of Parliament, all these crustaceans, molluscs and gastropods...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 15. — (Short title, citation, application and commencement.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I beg to move, in page 12, line 22, to leave out "thirty-seven," and to insert "thirty-eight." This Amendment would have the effect of deferring until 1st January, 1938, the coming into operation of this Measure. It is not a wrecking Amendment, nor is it designed merely to waste time. I have followed the progress of this Bill with the closest interest for the past two or three months. It has...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 15. — (Short title, citation, application and commencement.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I have sufficient acquaintance with English history in the past 30 years to realise that there have been some critical occasions when there has been a profound difference of opinion between the two Houses.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 15. — (Short title, citation, application and commencement.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: If I am not to be called to Order, I must neglect further observations on that point. I wish to see the corning into operation of the Bill delayed for another 18 months instead of having it brought into force practically within six months, simply because I believe that when it comes to be examined by all the Departments concerned, by chambers of trade and commerce, by trade unions of shop...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: First Schedule. — (Trades and Businesses exempted front the provisions of section one.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I should like to remind the promoters that three-quarters of the white fish consumed in this country is consumed in fried-fish shops. The Amendment is of far wider application than appears at first sight, and I think the House would be better advised, if it accepts the Amendment, to consider widening it rather than restricting it. I am credibly informed on pretty good authority that the Fish...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: First Schedule. — (Trades and Businesses exempted front the provisions of section one.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I am in as much doubt as other hon. Members on this matter, but I prefer to err with the hon. Member for Harrow (Sir I. Salmon) rather than to think rightly with the promoters of the Bill. If there is any doubt, I prefer to accept the authority of the hon. Member for Harrow in any matter which refers to the feeding of the people, and, equally, to leave the wild animals to the tender mercies...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: First Schedule. — (Trades and Businesses exempted front the provisions of section one.) (1 May 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: I think we should be well advised to accept the Amendment and allow the matter to be dealt with further in another place. This is the first attempt we have had this afternoon to restrict Sunday trading and the promoters of the Bill immediately demand that we should reject it. Let us have at least one Amendment which restricts Sunday trading.

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: New Clause. — (Special provisions as to seaside resorts.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: This new Clause drives not a coach-and-four but a whole convoy of motor omnibuses right through the Bill. I do not wish to press any further the devastating inquiry as to what is a seaside resort and why. If the words used were "pleasure resort" the question would be easier to answer. What I had in mind was the Lakes. It is true that they are fresh water and not salt water, and are not...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provision for Jewish traders.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: It we are to regard this as a drafting Amendment, we must now have a definition in the Schedule as to what the Jewish Sabbath is. It is a perfectly well-known institution. It runs from sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday. The universal custom, as shown by the Select Committee of this House of 1843 was then, and still is, for orthodox Jews to cease all forms of business from sundown on...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provision for Jewish traders.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: In that case, why put in the word "Jewish"? The interjection of the hon. Member is well in-

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provision for Jewish traders.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: The number of orthodox Jews in this country who genuinely observe the Jewish Sabbath is, for practical purposes, negligible, and that is very well known. We are opening here a new door in legislation. It is a completely new precedent to make special allowances for Jews or others in regard to the Sabbath in this way. It is a most dangerous thing. It may not be technically correct to say that...

Orders of the Day — Shops (Sunday Trading Restriction) Bill.: Clause 5. — (Provision for Jewish traders.) (24 Apr 1936)

Lieut-Colonel Sir Arnold Wilson: How many of them are there?
