To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will make a statement about the progress of his consultations about the future of the Shops Act 1950.

I have recently concluded my extensive programme of separate discussions with a wide range of major interest groups on possible ways of reforming the Shops Act 1950. Once the legal position of the Act in relation to Community law is clear, I hope to be in a position to recommend a way forward to the House.
