Select Committee on Delegated Powers and Deregulation Ninth Report

Further letter from the Home Office

Thank you for your letter of 7 March. The Government's responses to the Chairman's questions are set out below.

This point was covered in evidence at the Committee's meeting on 8 March.

The Government agrees with the view of the Association of Chief Police Officers that "every premises should be considered independently for suitability" for extended hours. This is provided for in the draft Order.

We accept your analysis of local authority responses to the consultation paper.

Each of the proposals made by local authorities is addressed in the attached supplementary memorandum.

Please let me know if you need anything further.

Dennis Wilmer
