§ Mr. Milligan
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement on his plans for consultation on Sunday trading.
§ Mr. Peter Lloyd
My right hon. and learned Friend the Home Secretary said in his statement on 26 November that we are consulting the Shopping Hours Reform Council and the Keep Sunday Special Campaign about how to reflect their models for reform of the law on Sunday trading in a Government Bill. My right hon. and learned Friend and I have also met representatives from a number of organisations and retailers to discuss our proposals for reform.
