Proposals from Chancellor George Osborne to extend shop opening hours on Sundays have received short shrift from Warley MP John Spellar.
John Spellar MP said:-
“The compromise on Sunday trading hours meant that those who want or need to shop on Sundays can do so, but that staff have an option. It is right that Sunday is a special day, especially for families. Furthermore every consultation since then has reaffirmed that the public are satisfied with this. This wouldn’t just be bad for individual workers and their families, but would erode the special position of Sunday. It’s no good David Cameron claiming his support for religion in the newspapers and then undermining Sunday. I will certainly be urging the Government to reject these ideas and will also vote against this if it comes before Parliament.”
