Lawmakers widen Sunday shopping restrictions

Budapest, March 17 (MTI) – Parliament approved on Tuesday an amendment to the law on Sunday shopping restrictions which widens the ban to retailers which operate on the area of a filling station but do not sell fuel.

The law sponsored by three ruling Fidesz party deputies received 115 votes for, 37 against and 24 abstentions — the latter including two Fidesz lawmakers.

According to several press reports, the law targets the Metro hypermarket with a view to shutting its operations on Sundays.

Filling stations which operate shops on their premises will be allowed to keep these open on Sunday.

New-Year

Separately, lawmakers amended the labour code so that employees of businesses which can stay open on certain Sundays before the year-end holidays should receive a double wage on those days.
