Harriett Baldwin calls for relaxation of high street shops opening hours

3rd March 2020

Harriett Baldwin calls for high street shops to be able to choose their own opening hours in order to help level up our high streets with the internet.

Harriett Baldwin (West Worcestershire) (Con)

Does the Minister agree that one of the best ways to level up the great British high street with the internet would be to allow our high street shops to choose when they open?

Paul Scully

I know that my hon. Friend has looked at extending the hours of the Malvern tourist information centre. The Government have reviewed this issue several times. There are strongly held views on both sides. We believe that the current rules represent a fair compromise between those seeking reduced opening hours and those seeking greater liberalisation.
