Repeal the Sunday Observance Act 1833 in full

Why is this idea important?

This Act requires that elections to public bodies that fall on a Sunday be held on the Saturday preceeding, or the Monday following. There is no need for this to be enshrined in law (especially with religious observance becoming less important to many and the modern uptake of secular values). It can also be argued that the Act is discriminatory against practicing Jews, who hold a generally much stricter position on Sabbath work restrictions than practicing Christians, and who hold their Sabbath on Saturday.
