Detail of outcome
This document provides the government’s response to the consultation and a summary of the views received. The response also includes references to some points which fell outside the scope of the consultation but which were considered important by respondents.
The government is concerned that the system of personal licences may not always be the most proportionate or effective way to ensure alcohol is sold responsibly. The consultation published today proposes enabling targeted, local alternatives to personal licences. We have estimated that our proposal could save businesses some £10 million a year, while keeping a focus on tackling crime and disorder at licensed premises. The government is seeking your views on whether it would achieve this.
The consultation ran for 8 weeks from 12 September to 7 November.
