New legislation designed to help pubs and nightclubs

New laws are in the works which would allow pubs and nightclubs stay open for longer.

Currently, any premises wanting to stay open must apply for a late licence through the courts.

They also have to pay a fee.

However new legislation from the Justice Minister Helen McEntee is designed to do away with that.

Pubs, bars and nightclubs have suffered massive financial hits during the COVID-19 pandemic, with hopes they can reopen again later this year.

The legislation, which will be considered later this year, hopes to give them a boost to recover some of the losses made during lockdowns.

It's part of Minister McEntee's Justice Plan for 2021, which is due to be unveiled later this morning.
