Institute of Licensing response to Home Office consultation re the proposed Protect Duty Published Date: 01/01/0001

Most supported the use of capacity to determine those venues to which the Protect Duty should apply, as this would appear to be the most consistent and readily understood of the possible criteria that could be applied.
The suggested threshold of 100 as the venue capacity is generally supported although there were some
suggestions that this figure could be higher.
