TORY plans to obliterate Sunday trading restrictions are a “betrayal” of the British people, Labour conference affirmed yesterday.

Chancellor George Osborne announced proposals to relax laws in this year’s Budget, saying such a move would generate more than £200 million a year in additional sales in the capital.

But moving a motion at Labour Party conference yesterday, shopworkers’ union Usdaw general secretary John Hannett said: “For many retail workers Sunday is the only time you have.

“If shops open all day more and more people will need to work. Before long Sunday will just be a normal day.”

The successful resolution calls on Labour to co-ordinate a “broad campaign” involving both bosses and workers against the changes and in favour of “high-quality employment rights.”

“We need a Labour Party that has its principles and its speeches carried out in the deeds,” Mr Hannett added.
