Explanatory note

This Supplementary Order Paper amends the Racing Reform Bill. It makes it clear that racing clubs and race meetings are not the intended target of section 235 of the Sale and Supply of Liquor Act 2012, by providing an exemption from section 235 for racing clubs on the days of race meetings when the consumption of alcohol takes place at a time when the club holds either an on-licence or an on-site special licence that applies to the race meeting.
