More than 300 against change
More than 300 MPs are opposed to extending Sunday trading hours, according to retail workers' union Usdaw.

So far, 273 MPs across the three major parties have signed an Early Day Motion against proposals to extend the six-hour trading limit for larger stores. A further 30 ministers and ministerial aides, unable to sign the motion because of parliamentary convention, have also offered their support privately.

Usdaw said more than half of Labour MPs supported its campaign, as well as a significant number from both opposition parties.

However, Usdaw general secretary John Hannett said: 'We're not complacent - this battle still has some way to go.'
