Lords to discuss licensing laws and night-time economy

The House of Lords is to look at the impact of licensing laws on the night-time economy in a discussion scheduled for next week.

The Lords Committee will examine the Licensing Act 2003 and ask whether licensing and planning regimes be merged, as well as how to strike a balance between the interests of a night-time economy and the needs of local residents. It will also ask what impact has the Night Tube had on London and whether pre-loading lead to crime and disorder, among other questions.

Two evidence sessions, to be held on 29 November, will hear from a group of experts including: Alan Miller, Night Time Industries Association; Peter Marks, Deltic Group; Ron Reid, Shoosmith's, on behalf of McDonald's; Ibrahim Dogus, British Kebab and Retail Awards; Leenamari Aantaa-Collier, Wilkes Partnership LLP, solicitors, Birmingham; Tony Lyons, partner, Kuit Steinart Levy LLP, solicitors, Manchester; Karl Suschitzky, environmental health officer, Derby City Council; and Peter Rogers, Sustainable Acoustics.
