Description

Henk de Vries commented in BNR Newsradio on a bill for the extension of Sunday opening hours of shops. He argued that the economic effects would not be that big as at the end of the day, people spending power will not increase. There might be a bit more ‘funshopping’ they could do, and there might be a positive cross-border effect with Belgium and Germany. But overall, he has some doubts.
