The Final Weekend Before Pubs And Clubs Can Apply For Extended Licences
SOMERSET, ENGLAND - FEBRUARY 5: A Drinker relaxes in Tucker's Grave, a traditional cider pub, February 5, 2005, Faulkland, Somerset, England. Regulars in the pub known for its stong rough cider say changes in the licensing law will make no differnce to them. This weekend was the last one before pubs and clubs can apply for extended licences. From February 7, venues can begin applying for 24-hour licences, however, the licences will not become effective until the Government puts an order before Parliament in November. Critics fear this will lead to increased binge-drinking, crime, disorder and city centres becoming no-go areas. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images) Matt Cardy—Getty Images
