Jeremy Corbyn MP, Islington North voted against giving local government powers to vary the restrictions on large shops opening on Sundays.

The majority of MPs voted against giving local government powers to vary the restrictions on large shops opening on Sundays.

The amendment accepted by the majority of MPs taking part in this vote was:

  • amendment 1, in page 50, line 33, leave out subsections (1) to (4).

This impacted Clause 33 of the Bill titled Extended Sunday opening hours and Sunday working.

The omitted subclauses would have enabled local government to vary the restrictions on large shops opening on Sundays. Provisions relating to the rights of shop workers in respect of Sunday opening hours remained unchanged.
