Jenrick hints sale of alcohol could be banned after 9pm

Robert Jenrick

Housing Secretary Robert Jenrick has suggested that the sale of alcohol could be banned after 9pm in some of the worst hit areas when the second lockdown ends.

The government are looking at multiple solutions for when the lockdown ends, whether it is the 2 December or even later if there is an extension.

Jenrick told the BBC, “We are now reviewing the tiers so that when the national measures come to an end, we are able to move the country, we hope, back into the tiered structure.

“We will be looking at whether the measures we had in the old tiers were effective. Remember they varied quite a bit in different parts of the country.

“In the new tiers, we would like greater consistency and we will have to see which measures were actually the most impactful on the virus.

“In my own area of Nottinghamshire, the local council chose to go over and above and limit the sale of alcohol from off-licences and so on after a certain time, so that people didn’t go home and have parties or drink alcohol on the streets.

“So, there were some tweaks to the tiers that you’re seeing in some parts of the country and it’s that sort of thing that we now need to consider. Was that a sensible move? If so, should we embed that in the new tier structure?”

He said that tighter controls could be introduced on top of the Tier 3 restrictions.
