asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what comments from the various trade organisations concerned have been received by him in connection with the suggested provisions for amending shops legislation which were published by his Department last year; what procedure will be followed before the necessary legislation is drafted; and when he anticipates it will be introduced.

I have received comments on many points from 58 organisations. I am reviewing the suggested provisions in the light of these comments, and if anything fresh emerges the organisations particularly affected will be consulted again. I regret that I cannot say when it will be possible to introduce legislation.
