Relaxation of Licensing Hours for Queen’s 90th birthday: Update

logo-30-high2The draft Licensing Act 2003 (Her Majesty The Queen’s Birthday Licensing Hours) Order 2016 has been laid before Parliament for approval. If approved, as must surely be inevitable, it will extend licensing hours for 2 hours beginning at 11pm on each of 10 June and 11 June 2016 for premises licences and club premises certificates which ordinarily authorise licensable activities to be carried on up to, or after, 11pm on each of those days. However, it will not apply to off-sales premises.
