The Home Office have published the Government Response to the follow up report to their 2017 post legislative scrutiny of the Licensing Act 2003. Statement on the Government Response.
Michael Kill CEO NTIA Says:
“As an industry we are extremely disappointed by the Governments response. In all honesty, we are not completely in agreement with all recommendations held within the House of Lords Select Committee review on the Licensing Act 2003, but where the Government had a clear opportunity to make a credible difference. The response was in the main around acknowledgement and ongoing concern, a rhetoric which has no value to the evolution of licensing and planning within our sector.”
