Tory rebels mount backbench rebellion against Sunday Trading law changes
Later this week, the Commons is set to debate and vote on relaxation of the Sunday trading laws, which currently restrict shops to being able to sell goods for a maximum of 6 hours on a Sunday. This rule was originally intended to ensure that workers had adequate time to rest at the weekend and have some family time. However, the Conservative government, and George Osborne and MR Javid in particular are keen to deregulate and allow councils to determine the most appropriate opening times for their local shops.
