HC Deb 06 November 1980 vol 991 cc662-3W
Mr. McCusker

asked the Secretary of State for Northern Ireland what is the closing date for submissions on the report of the inter-departmental review body on intoxicating liquor licensing in Northern Ireland; when he hopes to bring forward legislation; and what the anticipated procedure will be.

Mr. Rossi

Comments were sought by 31 March 1980. However, some submissions were received after this date and consideration of the report and comments thereon is still in progress. It is not therefore possible to say whether legislative proposals will be needed and, if so, when they could be introduced by the Order in Council procedure.
