Call for ban on pub happy hours

10th November 2008

Keith Vaz, the chairman of the committee, said: "At the moment you have a situation where so much of police time is taken up dealing with alcohol related crime. Happy hours lead to unhappy communities. Loss leaders in supermarkets cause real misery to city centres on a Saturday night."
