Today the Government has published the long-awaited follow-up response to the House of Lords Liaison Committee publication ‘The Licensing Act 2003: post-legislative scrutiny’.
The initial report by the House of Lords was published back in April 2017 and provided over 70 recommendations to the Government which are summarised here.
Following this, in November 2017 the Government issued their response to the report, which resulted in little legislative change and a few changes to the Statutory Guidance.
Earlier this year, the House of Lords Liaison Committee’s produced a follow-up report to the responses commenting on the progress and recommending 25 additional changes.
Now, the Government has issued their follow-up response.
A copy of the report can be found here.
For any further information or queries, please feel free to contact any of our licensing solicitors.
