Hospitality and Licensing - Modernising NI Liquor Licensing
A Bill aimed at modernising liquor licensing legislation in Northern Ireland has passed the final stage in the Assembly. The Bill, announced yesterday by Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey, will introduce later hours of service for pubs and hotels and remove restrictions on Easter opening hours. The Bill also seeks to curb harmful aspects of alcohol consumption by prohibiting self-service of alcohol and by placing restrictions on off-sales alcohol promotions and loyalty schemes.
