I beg to ask leave to present a petition from the residents of Orpington. My constituents are concerned that any future legislation on Sunday trading and commercial activity should uphold the character of Sunday as a shared and special day for the enjoyment of family life, rest and community worship. The petition is signed by 427 of my constituents and it reads: Wherefore your Petitioners pray that your Honourable House do safeguard the uniqueness of the whole of Sunday, both through the requirements of the law, and through the enforcement of the same.

To lie upon the Table.
