The two in the bar exemption was kept in 1982 because it recognised that on liquor licesed premises, the only place where the exmption applies, the public's safety was ensured and that an additional 'entertainment' licence was just not reqiured.

Local authorities using it to demonstrate that an addtional one persons does make the premises unsafe, was not forseen. Dr Howells has been unable or unwilling to challenge the many abuses by local authorities under this legislation.

That is why this Bill's uncertain terms will not protect anyone from local authorities who will claim anything they do to be for the public's safety. The Bill must not become law until everyone DOES understand what it means and is is agreement.
