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

Section 39: Prohibition on self-service and supply by vending machines

This section introduces new Article 31C in the Clubs Order (prohibition on self-service and sales by vending machines). It mirrors those provisions as set out in section 18 of the Act in respect of licensed premises and prevents the supply of intoxicating liquor not made under direct supervision.

Paragraph (3) of the new Article 31C extends the prohibition to the use of an “honesty box”, whereby persons are trusted to pay for intoxicating liquor by placing money in a container provided for that purpose, or agree to pay for by recording the intoxicating liquor appropriated by a process provided by the club.
