Evaluation of the impact of the Licensing Act 2003:
Licensing Act 2003 and tackling alcohol-related harm
4 March 2008
The Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport (Andy Burnham): I am today publishing the evidence gathered so far on the operation of the licensing laws introduced in England and Wales in November 2005, and setting out how we intend to monitor the licensing regime over the next few weeks and months, and the immediate action the Government is taking to tackle alcohol-related problems. Copies of the evaluation report are being placed in the Library of both Houses.
