A High Court judge on Friday banned Currys, the electrical goods chain store, from opening on Sundays, the Times reports (p6 December 11).

The paper says that the judge accepted an argument by Lincoln City Council that as the 1950 Shops Act was still the law he was under a duty to enforce it.

The ruling came less than 48 hours after the Commons approved the relaxing of Sunday trading laws. Lincoln city council, says the Times, had issued 96 summonses against the firm.
