Excerpt from The Report of the Select Committee of the House of Commons: On the Observance of the Lord's-Day, With the Substance of Evidence Your Committee have had prepared an abstract of the Statutes relating to the Observance of the Lord's-day, from which it appears that by the existing laws, and particularly by the 1 Car. 1, c. 1, and the 21 Geo.3, c.49, certain restrictions are imposed upon meetings, assemblies, or concourses of people upon the Lord's-day: That by the 3 Car. 1, c.2, Carriers, Waggon-men, Carmen, Wain-men, and Drovers are prohibited from travelling on that day: And that by the 29 Car.2, c.7, all persons are prohibited from doing or exercising any worldly labour, business, or work of their ordinary callings, on the Lord's-day, works of necessity and charity only excepted. Penalties are also imposed upon persons using, employing, or travelling with Boats, Wherries, Lighters, or Barges, except upon extraordinary occasions, to be allowed by a Justice of Peace or head officer. But the dressing or selling of meat in Inns, Cook-shops, or Victualling-houses, for such as otherwise cannot be provided for, and the crying and selling of Milk and Mackerel between certain hours, are excepted from these prohibitory enactments. By some recent Statutes particular directions are given with respect to Bakers following their business during certain hours. The attention of the House is requested to the whole of the Abstract above referred to, as set forth in the Appendix. 2. Your Committee, with a view to ascertain how far the "practices" are in accordance with the letter and spirit of the Statute Book, have gone into evidence of considerable length.
