Select Committee on Deregulation and Regulatory Reform First Report

Appendix 14


Letter to the Clerk of the Deregulation and Regulatory Reform Committee from The National Parliamentary Committee, Licensed Victuallers Association (dated 27 July 2001)

Proposal for the Regulatory Reform (Special Occasion Licensing) Order July 2001

I am in receipt of your letter of 19th July 2001 in relation to the above, which was considered by the Committee.

The ideal situation would be for the Order to be in place in time for licensees to plan for New Year's Eve 2001 but because many licensees can quickly put in place plans to accommodate the relaxation of hours, the Committee would urge the Government to press on with the procedure to bring into effect the arrangements for this New Year's Eve and subsequent New Year Eves.

I Look forward to hearing from you.
