Minister for Justice and Equality (Deputy Alan Shatter): The Government Legislation Programme provides for the publication of the Sale of Alcohol Bill in early 2012. This Bill will modernise all the laws relating to the sale and consumption of alcohol by repealing the Licensing Acts 1833 to 2010, as well as the Registration of Clubs Acts 1904 to 2008, and replacing them with streamlined and updated provisions. I will consider submissions in relation to the Bill from interested parties, including submissions on licensing hours, before finalising its contents.
