Councils in England and Wales want Sunday shopping to be deregulated, a survey indicates today, the Financial Times reports (p15).

The findings are in a report by the Institute of Public Finance which, says the FT, will add impetus to calls for reforms when Sunday trading is debated in the next session of parliament.

About 90% of councils have adopted a passive or inactive stance to enforcing the regulations, the FT reports, and says that councils fear that any change in the law except total deregulation would lead to heavy extra costs because councils would need to taken an active stance.
