EXPLANATORY NOTE

EXPLANATORY NOTE (This note is not part of the Order)

This Order is made under section 1 of the Regulatory Reform Act 2001. It reforms the law relating to licensing hours which has the effect of imposing burdens on people carrying out certain activities with a view to reducing those burdens on the occasion of Her Majesty's Golden Jubilee. It does so by amending provisions in the Regulatory Reform (Special Occasions Licensing) Order 2001 to allow the sale of intoxicating liquor in licensed premises other than off-licences, in registered clubs and in licensed canteens in the period between what would otherwise be the end of the permitted hours on 3rd June 2002 and 1 am on 4th June 2002.

Provision is made for any holder of a justices' licence, any club or any proprietor of a theatre to appeal against a Special Occasions restriction order, which can be made under the Regulatory Reform (Special Occasions Licensing) Order 2001.
