Licensing and Registration of Clubs (Amendment) Act (Northern Ireland) 2021

Section 2: Removal of restrictions on late opening for on-sales on Sunday

This section amends Article 30 of the Licensing Order (Occasional licences), Article 42 (General permitted hours), Article 44 (Additional permitted hours), Article 45 (Authorisations for additional permitted hours) and Article 47 (Extension licences) and removes the restrictions on late night permitted hours on a Sunday (currently restricted to 10pm with general permitted hours or 12 midnight with additional hours) for premises licensed for the sale and consumption of intoxicating liquor on the premises. This brings the general and additional permitted hours on any Sunday (not including Christmas Day) into line with those permitted on any other day.
