David Quarmby calls for Parliament to accept that society has changed, allow Sunday trading, and let people spend the day as they wish.
What did you do last Sunday? Pottered in the garden, catching up on some of those autumn jobs? Did you go along to the garden centre and buy some bulbs, perhaps a pair of gardening boots, and a few screws and a hinge to mend the shed door? Perhaps your wife went to the corner shop and bought some bacon, sausage and mushrooms for brunch. I'll bet that neither you nor she realised that the garden centre was breaking the law by selling the screws, hinge and boots - though not the bulbs - as was the corner shop by selling the bacon and the sausage - but not the mushrooms.
