Section 36: Underage functions

This section introduces new Article 32A in the Clubs Order (Authorisations for underage functions). The provisions in Article 32A for police authorisations if an underage function is taking place in club premises correspond to those set out for court authorisations for licensed premises in section 14 of the Act.

Subsection (4) inserts paragraph (7A) in Article 106 of the Betting, Gaming, Lotteries and Amusements (Northern Ireland) Order 1985 (use of gaming machines in registered clubs). This paragraph makes it an offence for gaming machines to be made available in any part of club premises in which an underage function is being held.
