ALE Winter 2002/2003 No. 308

Licensing Bill

ALE 297 in Spring 2000 reported on the Licensing White Paper for England and Wales, produced to satisfy a 1997 election pledge. There was a false start in late 2001 (ALE 304) but nearly three years and one election on, the Bill has at last appeared. But what does it mean? Here we shun headline-grabbing nonsense slogans like "pubs will open 24-hours a day" and look at what it really means. And it's not all great news.


So there's plenty of controversy there. What do you think? The editor expects to have a very full letters page next issue!
