Sunday trading requete defeated
Friday 2nd November 2012, 4:25PM GMT.
The States has this afternoon rejected a call to suspend the Sunday Trading law for a year.
The requete, from Deputy Mike Hadley, pictured, was defeated at the end of a day-long discussion.
Deputy Hadley had been prompted to bring forward his plan by the Commerce and Employment Department’s announement that it had no plans to review Sunday trading.
But C&E Minister Deputy Kevin Stewart today told members that his department would look at the issue during the life of this House.
The requete was lost by 28 votes to 13 with one abstention.
