Is this just applicable to branded goods in the way of designer goods does
anyone know?

And what is to stop online sellers just 'opening' a B&M store from their
current stores/home but only open it to the public for 1 minute a week? Such
legislation would be totally unenforcable if it is passed.

I think so, I clicked on the link to the survey which did not ask for any
login details etc & the email did come from the same company conducting the
survey,

As you say, unenforceable. And pretty daft, given how many market leaders
are web only. Are Amazon supposed to open a B&M......? I think not.
