Pub licensees should not need to have a door badge to stop people coming into their own pub

Comment 2nd July 2010

Landlords should not have to spend hundreds of pounds to get a door license to allow them to uphold the licensing objectives imposed on them.
In order to hold an alcohol license, you need a CRB check and to take exams to ensure that you understand your responsibilities.
If I wanted to stand on my own door and stop drunkards entering, I now need to have a door badge, however I can still be prosecuted if I fail to stop them coming in.

Why does this matter?

This is another tax on responsible members of the trade in order to simply do their job. Obtaining the door license is just another box ticking exercise which has to be accompanied by yet another three figure cheque to a government organisation, it is more red tape on an industry which is already suffering massively due to the actions of the previous government.
