    Beer

    With Morrisons great prices on beer....£9 each of 10 Guinness 10 strongbow 12 Carling etc
    N Asda with 10 boddingtons and 10 4% Stella for £7.
    Was thinking will we ever see a good deal on beer again?
    Because these prices are far from great!I don't know which of these 2 deal are better,but both seem poor?

    not if the torys get in.

    Depends what you prefer...

    Wait for the BBQ season, supermarkets love an offer then, or the start of th World Cup will make some beer bargains arrive.

    There are licensing laws about at the moment that mean retailers aren't supposed to be offering great deals such as these for alcohol - it's just that not licensing authority has had the balls to take the big guys on, yet.

    Don't fret there will be plenty of bargain booze later on in the summer so we can all binge out and end up either in court for drunken related behaviour or on jeremy kyle to try and get rehabilitated

    do you have links to this please?

    there was talk about the government getting tougher on cheap alcohol but i didnt realise anything had been confirmed.....especially as they refused to limit the advertising of alcohol pre-watershed (9pm) and limiting its target audience..... which was brushed under the carpet with the whole drugs "furore"



    btw morrisons 3 cases for £18 has only just finished so id imagine there will be a new offer starting shortly

    I gave you proof - although you asked for a link...

    Scotland is in the UK. From link I previously gave you:

    The Act introduces a range of measures that together aim to reduce the … The Act introduces a range of measures that together aim to reduce the adverse impact drinking has onsociety. For example:• a premises licence will be refused if the application is deemed inconsistent with one or more of thelicensing objectives• the banning of ‘irresponsible promotional activities’ in both on- and off-sales, such as ‘happyhours’, and other promotions, like ‘two-for-ones’, which encourage binge and speed drinking• drink prices fixed for a minimum of 72 hours in on- and off-sales premises



    The Policing and Crime Act I also provided a link to clearly sets out provision for England and Wales to do the exact same.

    Section 32 introduces Schedule 4 which makes provision about mandatory … Section 32 introduces Schedule 4 which makes provision about mandatory licensing conditions relating to alcohol.214.Schedule 4 amends the Licensing Act 2003 to create an enabling power that allows the Secretary of State to set out (in secondary legislation) no more than nine mandatory licence conditions relating to the supply of alcohol for all new and existing premises licences and for all new and existing club premises certificates respectively (or for those premises licences or club premises certificates of a particular description);215.All conditions must be in made in accordance with the four licensing objectives set out in the Licensing Act 2003. These are: the prevention of crime and disorder; public safety; the prevention of public nuisance; and the protection of children from harm.216.Paragraph 1 amends the Licensing Act 2003 so that where premises are licensed to sell alcohol, their licence is subject to the mandatory conditions specified in an order made by the Secretary of State.217.Paragraph 2 amends the Licensing Act 2003 to allow the Secretary of State, in secondary legislation, to specify up to nine mandatory licensing conditions that could apply to all current or future premises licences. Each mandatory condition takes precedence over any existing licensing conditions to the extent the mandatory conditions are identical or inconsistent and more onerous.218.Paragraphs 3 and 4 are equivalent to paragraphs 1 and 2 respectively, except that they relate to club premises certificates rather than to premises licences (the list of conditions in respect of club premises certificates could be different to that for premises licences). These certificates relate to members’ clubs rather than nightclubs.219.These powers extend to England and Wales.220.There are further minor and consequential amendments to the Licensing Act 2003 set out in Schedule 7.

    Where in my statement above did I mention anything about the Law in question having to be UK wide? You made that assumption, not me.

    I showed you the link to the England and Wales law as it makes the provision (nine to be exact) for enacting additional licensing conditions similar to those already in force in Scotland.

    So, clearly, this is law pertaining to the restriction of promotions, so it's not wrong.

    You can carry on regardless, as I know you will, even with the facts presented to you, you still argue the odds.

    well there is no law/legislation currently restricting alcohol promotion in england or wales like you suggest so it is wrong

    maybe go back and correct your original post to scotland, then we wouldnt be having this pointless argument. instead of pointing to scottish legislation and suggesting its for the whole of the UK;-)

    1. I never suggested anything about the legislation being UK wide, you clearly had that stipulation in your own head - I said there was legislation governing the promotion of alcohol sales - you assumed I meant all over the UK.

    2. I didn't have to state the Law only covered Scotland. You decided that.

    3. The Policing and Crime Act 2009 is Law makes the provision for adding licensing conditions. The Act is Law, the licensing conditions are exactly that, not Law.

    4. Going round in circles as usual. See points above.

    5. We wouldn't be having this pointless argument if you weren't a poster on here trolling the boards as is your raison d'etre.
