Licensing Laws

During the debate on the new licensing laws, Charles Walker calls for the Minister to resign if the extension of licensing laws does not lead to a reduction in violent crime and binge drinking...

Mr. Charles Walker (Broxbourne) (Con): Will the Minister resign if the extension of licensing hours does not lead to a reduction in violent crime and binge drinking? A simple yes or no will suffice.

James Purnell: I have only just got here, so I am not planning to resign yet.
