A DEPUTY whose wife has fallen victim to Sunday trading laws voted against suspending them for a trial period.

A DEPUTY whose wife has fallen victim to Sunday trading laws voted against suspending them for a trial period.

But Rob Jones, pictured, explained his reasons for rejecting Deputy Mike Hadley's requete in November, saying it was badly written and he felt Commerce and Employment should be left to get on with its own workload.

Deputy Jones's wife, Julie, is the owner of Guernsey Weddings, which cancelled the wedding fayre due to be held yesterday.

Six of the 34 exhibitors who signed up to take part in the St James event would not have qualified for Sunday trading because St James did not hold its own category G licence.

Deputy Hadley's requete, which was defeated, would not have saved the event because the year-long suspension would have come into effect on 1 March.
