asked the President of the Board of Trade under what authority he has the power to include retail businesses in the Location of Retail Businesses Orders other than those included in the respective categories of these Orders; and what steps should retailers take to get so included?

Such businesses could be included by a further Order made under Regulation 55A of the Defence Regulations. As my hon. Friend is no doubt aware, most non-food retail businesses are already included, but I shall be glad to consider any further applications.
