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

Section 31: Removal of restrictions on late opening on Sunday

This section amends Article 24 (general permitted hours) and Article 26 (authorisations for special occasions) of the Clubs Order and removes the restrictions on late night permitted hours on a Sunday (currently restricted to 10pm and 12 midnight respectively) for registered clubs. This brings the permitted hours on any Sunday into line with those permitted on any other day (i.e. 11pm, other than Christmas Day, and 1am of the next day for special occasions).
