1083. Sunday trading of shops.

The Shops Act 1950, the Shops (Airports) Act 1962 and the Shops (Early Closing Days) Act 1965 subjected shops to detailed restrictions in relation to hours of closing, conditions of employment, the hours of employment of young persons and relatively strict rules on Sunday trading. These restrictions have now been abolished1, except in the case of Sunday trading2, and such restrictions as are now in force relate only to large shops3. The general prohibition on large shops opening on Sunday for the serving of retail customers is subject to statutory exemptions
