The government's attempts to revise Sunday trading laws will be rushed through the Commons before Christmas, the Guardian reports (20 November p4).

The paper says that the government minister Peter Lloyd at the Home Office confirmed that it is intended that no shopworkers will lose their jobs if they refuse to work Sundays.

There will be three options open to MPs: deregulation, regulation with no shop opening unless it is exempt and partial deregulation with smaller shops allowed to be open at any time on a Sunday and larger shops opening for six hours having given written notice.
