Sale and Supply of Alcohol (Renewal of Licences) Amendment Bill (No 2)

Proposed amendments

Louisa Wall, in Committee, to move the following amendments:

Clause 4

In clause 4, replace “renewal of licence” (page 2, line 3) with “renewal of an off-licence”.

In clause 4, replace “a licence” (page 2, line 6) with “an off-licence”.

Clause 5

In clause 5, new section 133(1) replace “a licence” (page 2, line 11) with “an off-licence”.

In clause 5, new section 133(1) replace “the licence” (page 2, line 12) with “the off-licence”.

In clause 5, new section 133(2) replace “licence” (page 2, line 17) with “off-licence” in both places it occurs.

After clause 5, new section 133(2) (page 2, after line 20), insert:

(3)

In considering whether to renew a licence other than an off-licence, the licensing authority or licensing committee concerned must not take into account any inconsistency between a relevant local alcohol policy and—

(a)

the renewal of the licence; or

(b)

the consequences of its renewal.

(4)

The licensing authority or licensing committee concerned may impose particular conditions on any licence it renews, other than an off-licence, if—

(a)

there is any relevant local alcohol policy; and

(b)

it considers that the renewal of the licence, or the consequences of the renewal of the licence, without those conditions imposed on it would be inconsistent with the policy.

Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper clarifies that the discretion to refuse the renewal of a licence for sale and supply of alcohol that is inconsistent with a relevant local alcohol policy applies only to existing off-licences. This Supplementary Order Paper reinstates existing section 133(1) and (2) of the principal Act in respect of renewal of licences other than off-licences.
