    This is just fucking gibberish. You're asked to give your verdict on things before the licensing policy is even explained.

    That’s pretty dumb.

    And the document is 61 pages long and is full of unintelligible or unfriendly council-speak.

    I notice that divergence between planning and licensing is noticed. If planning give less hours than licensing then shorter hours apply.

    I don't like the way the draft policy integrates proposed policy with immigration enforcement. Making licensed venues check peoples immigration status if they want to work at venue.

    I see little on enforcement. Nothing on bringing back the late night noise team.

    Its all very well be having policies to safeguard local residents from disturbance. But if they aren't enforced makes whole exercise in updating licensing regs pointless.

    I was under the impression that all businesses have to check a potential employee's right to work status.

    Lambeth are making a big song and dance about it in the draft policy.

    Yes due to the to fascistic government employers / landlords and NHS are already , in theory, expected to check peoples immigration status.

    I agree unfortunately its a given so why Council go on about it as part of licensing objectives is beyond me. Its unnecessary as its already covered by other legislation.

    Immigration enforcement should not be included in licensing policy.

    Particularly in Lambeth. As draft policy makes great play on how "diverse" Lambeth is.
