MPs call for temporary suspension of Sunday trading hours
The call has been apposed by convenience industry trade organisations
The campaign to get supermarkets to open as long as convenience stores in England is being led by MPs Nus Ghani and Peter Kelly.
Despite claiming the law makes it “harder for shops to manage the number of people entering their premises”, Tesco and other supermarkets refused to back the move, which is opposed by convenience trade groups including the NFRN and ACS.
