Report by the Policy Manager
(1) That the Associationís response, welcoming the Governmentís proposals and making the comments set out in Annex 1 be approved; and

1. The Local Government Association sought views on the Home Office White Paper "Time for Reform: Proposals for the Modernisation of Our Licensing Laws" in July. If implemented, the proposals will give significant recognition to local authoritiesí role in community safety generally, and provide for an important strengthening of local authority powers.
2. Annex 2 gives a summary of the proposals.
3. The Associationís meeting in July was cancelled and so the Chief Executivesí Group authorised the attached response on behalf of the Association.
