Helen and local Labour Party members gathered this week to show their support for the Keep Sunday Special campaign.
The Enterprise Bill which is currently passing through the House of Commons contains a provision to extend Sunday trading and Sunday working hours despite a promise from the Prime Minister last year that there was no plan to relax Sunday Trading laws.
"I oppose any extension to Sunday trading hours for a number of reasons.
Firstly, I believe Sunday should be kept as a time for family, community and rest. I fear that the extension of hours may pressure workers into taking extra hours on, even if they do not wish to.
Secondly, opening hours for larger stores (those subject to Sunday trading laws) are long enough already. Extending hours risks taking business away from smaller shops that are open when supermarkets are currently closed.
Thirdly, there is very little demand for change, with three-quarters of the general public supporting existing rules. 91% of constituents who have contacted me on the issue oppose the plans too."
