Letter from The Restaurant Association|
I am writing on behalf of The Restaurant Association
to express my firm support for the Deregulation (Sunday Dancing
and Licensing) Order 2000 which I understand your committee is
As you may know, The Restaurant Association is a
national organisation exclusively dedicated to protecting and
enhancing the interests of restaurateurs. We have almost 3000
members, from small independent restaurants to large quoted groups
with our membership spread right across the UK.
The Association welcomes the moves towards licensing
liberalisation and in particular this move to allow restaurants
to apply for extended hours orders on Sundays. This proposal fits
well with the current Home Office proposals to remove the music
and entertainment requirement attached to extended hours orders.
I hope your committee will approve the Order and
look forward to seeing it implemented in the near future.
