Letter from Mr D Leeming, Nelson, Lancs|
I write to express my concern at the proposals. I
feel that such changes cannot be good for our country as a whole
and for society. The Christian observance of Sunday as a day of
rest has brought great benefits to this nation.
Changes will give greater opportunity for increased
drink and drug abuse especially among young people.
Further they will lead to increased pressure for
many to work on Sunday especially in the leisure industry.
In addition changes will encourage disturbance, late
on Sunday evening and in the early hours of Monday morning.
Finally, such changes will have a detrimental effect
on Sunday as a day that families can spend together.
