Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
Shambles,

I take it that the questions are rhetorical. They are all valid rhetorical questions if your LA take the attitudes suggested. I only take issue with one thing. It iis almost certainly easier to use the Licensing Act itself as a defence in the circumstances that you postulate than it is to use the HRA. i.e. the best defence against a vexatious prosecution under the Licensing Act is to establish to the satisfaction of the magistrates that there was no breach of the act.
