MPs are due to debate three options for reforming Sunday trading laws next Monday after the two main groups opposing major reform merged their campaigns.

The three options now include: - total deregulation - which is favoured by Home Secretary Michael Howard and most of the cabinet - partial deregulation, with small shops allowed to open any time and larger stores restricted to six hours - most large shops closed except for the four Sundays before Christmas. Small shops and a few others could open on Sundays. The Keep Sunday Special campaign and Retailers for Shops Act Reform, led by Marks and Spencer, have jointly backed the third option.
