The Shambles Affected by The Licensing Act 2003 (439* d) RE: Affected by The Licensing Act 2003 04 Apr 07

It has saved a load of hassle..............

That is was thought to be required realy says it all. I suggest that it has only papered over the cracks in the ill-concieved, legislation.

Any 'hassle' it may appear to have saved is only that caused in the first place by this so-called reform and any red tape it may have busted, was only needless red tape created by the Act.

But the danger is that the legislation provides safeguards, if an event is prevented or restricted by a Local Authority's licensing policy.

Any event prevented (for any reason) on land where the local authority is the licence holder in this sinister fashion - will not have any recourse. Which is why of course the employees of my council are so keen on it - for it is they alone who will be able to decide these things. And that is just as they like it.
