A House of Lords Committee set up to conduct scrutiny of the Licensing Act 2003
Updated: Jul 31, 2018
The Licensing Act 2003 set out to provide greater freedom to the hospitality and leisure industry, as well as giving consumers more choice. At the same time the legislation was intended to grant authorities the appropriate powers to deal with misuse of these freedoms. The House of Lords Licensing Act 2003 Committee is now investigating the effectiveness of the Act and would like to hear from all those affected by it. It will publish its report early in 2017.
Peter Rogers has been asked to contribute to the evidence on the above, relating to Noise impact of residents and the Live Music Act, and may be giving evidence as part of a panel in September/October.
