HC Deb 27 November 1985 vol 87 c567W
Mr. Murphy

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department what representations he has received on the terms of the Shops Bill [Lords] from individuals and organisations; if he will indicate which of those were opposed to the Bill; and if he will make a statement.

Mr. Waddington

Few representations have been received as yet which relate specifically to the terms of the Shops Bill, but we have received much correspondence from organisations and individuals on Sunday trading, most of it including arguments against the complete abolition of statutory restrictions.
