64% support Sunday trading in Guernsey

There's overwhelming support for shops to open on a Sunday in Guernsey.

The results of a government survey have been released showing 64% of the public want Sunday trading to be introduced.

21% think laws should also be relaxed at certain times of the year, like Christmas and during the summer.

39% said they would 'very likely' do more shopping on Sundays if more shops were open.

The results show there's support from retailers too with more than half (53%) saying they would like to open their doors on a Sunday.

Also, the vast majority of residents wanted a better range of shops to be allowed to trade on a Sunday when cruise liners are visiting.

And 93% believe any new Sunday trading laws should apply to all parishes, not just St Peter Port.
