There has been absolutely no change at all

“NFRN members were glad local authorities were not granted extra powers to demand the withdrawal of super-strength ciders and lagers from stores. During pilot ‘Reducing the Strength’ schemes,  some councils were accused of heavy-handedness and discriminating against retailers.”

Mike Mitchelson, national president, NFRN

“There has been absolutely no change at all. Brexit is seen as the legislative priority and the Government recommendations based on the Lord’s review are sat on a shelf gathering dust. Without Government action, licensing authorities lack the resources to undertake the improvements on their own.”

Gill Sheratt, director,
Licensing Matters
