Retail closure for peace and decorum.

REMEMBRANCE Sunday falls exactly on November 11 (Armistice Day) and exactly 100 years since the guns fell silent in the fields where the poppies grew.

There is hence a prima facie case for legislation to provide for retail closure to enable a Remembrance Sunday of greater peace and dignity - and to enable more working people to be able to partake in the remembrance events in their respective communities.

MPs and peers will gain many plaudits were they to put party divisions aside and come together in unity namely to pass legislation to enable a Remembrance Sunday of greater peace and decorum for all in 2018.
