Call for Evidence
A House of Lords Select Committee has been set up to assess the impact of Licensing Act 2003 since it came fully into force in November 2005. The Select Committee has recently issued a ‘Call for Evidence’, seeking views from a wide range of stakeholders and interested parties.
The consultation seeks views on the general working of the Act since it came into force, particularly as to whether it provides the right ‘balance’ between various interests. It also sets out a number of specific areas on which it seeks views, including community engagement in the licensing process.
The ‘Call for Evidence’ can be viewed here.
