The Shop Trading Hours Amendment Bill passes final reading by 62 votes to 59, following a personal vote. The bill will allow local authorities to make decisions about shop trading on Easter Sunday. Debate on the bills sees Labour MPs calling on their Government counterparts to vote with their consciences, as opposed to along party lines.
