SHAAP response to House of Lords Select Committee Consultation on Licensing Act 2003

SHAAP has submitted a response to the House of Lords Select Committee Select Committee on the Licensing Act 2003 Consultation.

In our response we support the four current existing licensing objectives and call for the protection of public health to be added as a fifth licensing objective to the Act (as in Scotland); greater community involvement in licensing decisions; and the introduction of a minimum unit price for alcohol, to complement licensing, as an effective mechanism for controlling availability and reducing alcohol-related harm.
