"Let us stay open for longer on Sunday" that's what some of the biggest names in shopping are asking for. Asda, Morrisons and Selfridges - are backing a Parliamentary offensive to extend Sunday trading hours. The retailers and some MPs want to relax laws in England and Wales which prevent large stores opening for more than six hours on Sundays. But where would this leave Northern Ireland - here the law currently stands that "large shops, can open any time between 1pm and 6pm." Calum Webster from the Christian Institute
