In England and Wales, should staff training for the sale of alcohol be compulsory ?
Today’s Big Question ????
In England and Wales, should staff training for the sale of alcohol be compulsory ? In Scotland under the 2005 licensing Act it more or less is! The law in Scotland states anyone working part time, full time
Paid or un-paid, behind a bar or retail sales counter must have a minimal of two hours training on the 16 criteria under the Licensing Act (2005) Scotland.
In Australia and in most US states responsible alcohol training for staff is compulsory!
Local Councils are set to review their statements of licensing policy in January 2011. I wonder how many will add conditions about staff training? Will this help reduce un-authorised sales to individuals under the age of 18?
What do you think????? comments please!
