HC Deb 15 July 1992 vol 211 c774W
Mr. Ray Powell

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on his policy on Sunday trading following(a) the outcome of the Kirklees case and (b) the delivery of the Advocate-General's opinion in the case before the European Court of Justice.

Mr. Peter Lloyd

This policy is affected neither by the Kirklees judgment, because that determined only the law on interim injunctions, nor by the Advocate General's delivery on 8 July of his opinion to the ECJ, because it formed only part of the Court's deliberations.

Forward to
