The garden industry has been keen on Government plans to extend Sunday trading at shops including garden centres to longer than the current six hours a day.
In November, Prime Minister David Cameron pulled plans for a Commons vote to relax Sunday trading laws in the face of a rebellion by 20 of his own Conservative MPs.
The Prime Minister had planned to force a vote on allowing councils to extend Sunday opening hours in the Cities and Local Government Devolution Bill.
MPs from the Conservative, Labour, SNP and DUP parties were planning to vote down the measure, which only affects shops in England and Wales.
The Government said then it would bring back the Bill in the Enterprise Bill at a later date, which will now be in early February.
HTA chief executive Carol Paris said the new English Votes for English Laws rules could help get the unchanged Bill through: "I really hope they go for that. For the SNP to vote on something that impacts only on England and Wales' shops is wrong."
