Bishop of Chester asks question on Sunday Trading

On the 14th December Baroness Deech asked the Government “whether they have plans to reform Sunday trading laws.” The Bishop of Chester, the Rt Revd Peter Forster, asked a follow-up question.


ChesterThe Lord Bishop of Chester: My Lords, would a useful reform be to go back to the good old days when people were paid double time for working on Sunday; then, shops, in the main, would not want to open? If I introduced a Private Member’s Bill, would the Government support me?


Baroness Neville-Rolfe: My Lords, we have not taken decisions yet in relation to our proposals, or on what legislative vehicle would be appropriate.
