Bill aims to curb binge drinking [Apr. 24th, 2008|01:00 pm]

"Under the new proposed legislation, the sale of alcohol in off-licences will be allowed only between 10.30am and 10pm, instead of 7.30am and 12.30am. It proposes that alcohol sold in supermarkets and convenience stores must be displayed and sold either behind a counter or in an area separate from the rest of the premises. The loophole which allows nightclubs and pubs with theatre licences to serve beyond normal closing hours will also be closed." - From the IT.

its very annoying.. I can imagine it will really effect smaller shops from selling off sales, how are they to build a separate area for their alcohol? Many of them will just have to stop selling wine, beer etc...

The theatre license thing is a pain too, the G and D have been opening til 4 the past few weeks with zero trouble, only to go back to 2am now

Still, I expected it to be worse
