House of Lords debate on the Licensing Act 2003 (Liaison Committee Report) Published Date: 18/05/2023

On 17th May, the House of Lords debated the Liaison Committee Report on the Licensing Act 2003. Particular areas of focus include the co-ordination of licensing and planning systems; the agent of change principle; training; access to licensed premises for disabled people; the night-time economy; the pricing and taxation of alcohol; the sale of alcohol airside at airports; application systems; and the national database for personal licence holders.

The debate transcript is available online, and it is clear that the above matters remain very much in focus for the House of Lords, and the government will be under some pressure to deliver outcomes accordingly.
