McBride to fight for regulated shop hours

LIBERAL candidate for MacKillop Nick McBride will fight to retain Millicent’s regulated shop trading hours, putting him at odds with his party’s deregulation policy.

A question from the floor at Tuesday night’s candidates forum about the Liberal Party’s move to deregulate shopping hours, which would allow large retailers Target Country, Foster’s Foodland and Woolworths to open on Sundays and public holidays, was met with applause.

The State Opposition will introduce amendments to the law to allow the three regulated retailers to open from midnight to 9pm every day of the year, with the exception of Christmas Day, Good Friday and Anzac Day
