Memorandum submitted by Gillian Clark



 I hope you are looking sympathetically at the effect that the new licensing laws are having on small social gatherings.  Because of the new licensing costs, our church concerts are now up in price, there are fewer performers, and now we have been told the alcohol drinks in the interval will have to go.  We cannot believe that local, sociable events are being spoilt by the latest licensing laws which are making unnecessary and unfair financial demands on our local community.
