A subset V of M(G) is left H-invariant if it is invariant under left translation by the elements of H, a subset of a locally compact group G. We establish necessary and sufficient conditions on H which ensure that finite dimensional subspaces of M(G) when G is compact, or of L∞(G) when G is locally compact Abelian, which are invariant in this weaker sense, contain only trigonometric polynomials. This generalises known results for finite dimensional G-invariant subspaces. We show that if H is a subgroup of finite index in a compact group G, and the span of the H-translates of μ is a weak*-closed subspace of L∞(G) or M(G) (or is closed in Lp(G)for 1 ≤ p < ∞), then μ is a trigonometric polynomial.

We also obtain some results concerning functions that possess the analogous weaker almost periodic condition relative to H.
