Lords Amendment: In page 19, line 44, leave out subsection (8) and insert:
(8) In the case of premises in a part of the metropolis specified for the purposes of subsection (1) of section nineteen of this Act, the following provisions shall have effect:
§ Mr. Younger
I beg to move, "That this House doth agree with the Lords in the said Amendment."
This is an Amendment making arrangements whereby certain of what are now called bottle parties will have time to make necessary alterations to enable them to qualify to register as clubs. I think perhaps the principal point is that during the interim period, while they are allowed to continue, before they are registered as clubs under these provisions which we are proposing drinking at bottle parties will have to be kept within the hours permissible to hotels and restaurants under the special hours certificate. It would obviously be unfair if they were to continue to be completely unrestricted during that interim period.
§ Mr. C. S. Taylor (Eastbourne)
There is a distinction between a club and a bottle party. Does this apply to both clubs and bottle parties?
