The government plans to extend Sunday trading hours, which could affect Lincolnshire, are facing defeat in the House of Commons.
Some small businesses in Lincoln are in favour of the proposals to change Sunday trading laws.
At the moment smaller shops can open all day, but restrictions meaning shops over 3000 sq ft can only stay open for six consecutive hours.
The original plans were brought about to support the high streets in combating the rise of online shopping.
However, the Scottish National Party who have 56 MPs in the Commons have decided to vote against the proposals – which could hinder the Conservatives efforts in getting the new law through the Commons.
Richard Baxter, from Goodies of Lincoln and Chairman of the Bottom of the Hill Business Association, is in support of the longer hours.
