Abstract: For any topological semigroup S with separately continuous operation, let $ C(S)$ denote the set of all bounded continuous real valued functions on S with the supremum norm and let $ {\text{LUC}}(S)$ denote the set of all f in $ C(S)$ such that whenever $ \{ s(\gamma )\} $ is a net in S which converges to some s in S, then $ \sup \{ \vert f(s(\gamma )t) - f(st)\vert:t \in S\} $ converges to 0. In this paper we prove that if S is an abelian subsemigroup of a compact topological group and $ f \in {\text{LUC}}(S)$, then there is an $ F \in {\text{LUC}}(G)$ where $ F(s) = f(s)$ for all $ s \in S$. We also show whenever there is an extension of the type indicated above, there is a norm preserving extension.
