    The proposal was rejected by 12 votes to three. DUP, Sinn Féin and the SDLP all opposed the measure in the council vote. Nearly 2,500 individuals and organisations had responded to the consultation. The proposal was to designate Belfast as a ‘holiday resort’ under the Northern Ireland’s Shops Order 1997 and to allow all-day opening on 18 days a year.
