Letter from Miss I MacGregor|
I am writing to express my concern about the above
proposed legislation, because:
(1) The Fourth Commandment 'Remember the Sabbath
Day to Keep it Holy ...' Exodus XX.8;
(2) If effected, these changes would encourage drug
addiction and alcoholism even more;
(3) There would be more pressure on more people to
work in the pubs and clubs on the Lord's Day;
(4) The unfortunates who live near licensed premises
would be exposed to noise for longer periods at a time.
Alas, Scotland has already largely lost any regard
for the Biblical day of rest and it may well be that the proposals
relate to England and Wales only. Even so, I spent my growing-up
years in England and have an interest in her welfare!
