The Institute of Public Health made a submission to the Department of Justice on a Review of Alcohol Licensing in Ireland in January 2022.
The submission was made in response to a public consultation on the Sale of Alcohol Bill.
Legislation governing the sale, supply and consumption of alcohol in licensed premises are set out in the Licensing Acts 1833 to 2018 and in the Registration of Clubs Acts 1904 to 2008.
The objective of the proposed Sale of Alcohol Bill is to repeal the Licensing Acts and the Registration of Clubs Acts and to replace them with updated and streamlined provisions.
