Lib Dems condemn Licensing Act

By | Published on Friday 15 May 2009

The Liberal Democrat’s Culture, Media And Sport Spokesperson, Lord Clement-Jones, has said that the Licensing Act, which was, as previously reported, the subject of a report by the Government’s Culture, Media And Sport Committee released yesterday, is a “a total disaster”.

In fact, here’s all of what he said, not just the end bit: “The conclusions of this report are welcome and support what the Liberal Democrats have been saying for a long time. Despite government promises at the time of its introduction that it would lead to an explosion in live music, the Licensing Act has been a total disaster”. So that’s them told.
