Session 2005-06
Other Bills before Parliament


Short Title of the Bill
Make provision for reducing and dealing with the abuse of alcohol; to make provision about real and imitation firearms, about ammunition and about knives and other weapons; to amend the Football Spectators Act 1989 and the Football (Disorder) Act 2000; to amend the Sexual Offences Act 2003 and section 8 of the Crime and Disorder Act 1998; to amend section 23 of the Children and Young Persons Act 1969; to amend the Mobile Telephones (Re-programming) Act 2002; and for connected purposes.

Extract from Explanatory Note produced by Government Department   
In January 2005 the Government published a consultation paper called "Drinking Responsibly - The Government's Proposals". This set out proposals for introducing Drinking Banning Orders. The range of prohibitions available through Drinking Banning Orders - which could include exclusions from certain premises - will render the provisions of the Licensed Premises (Exclusion of Certain Persons) Act 1980 redundant. Schedule 4 therefore repeals the 1980 Act.
The Government's proposals for powers for local authorities and the police to designate alcohol disorder zones and to charge licensed premises for the costs of dealing with alcohol-related crime and disorder were also included in the "Drinking Responsibly" consultation paper.
