The government’s Shop Trading Hours Amendment Bill has passed its third and final reading on personal vote, by 62 to 59.

This bill amends the Shop Trading Hours Act Repeal Act 1990 to grant territorial authorities a limited power to create bylaws that allow shop trading on Easter Sunday, and enable shop workers to refuse work on Easter Sunday.
