P-05-1100 Allow pubs and restaurants in Wales to serve alcohol/stay open after 6pm


This petition was submitted by Gwilym Owen having collected a total of 4,619 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

Restrictions announced by Mark Drakeford will come into force 6pm, 4th December, which will see the hospitality industry forbidden from selling alcohol, and having to close at 6pm. These new restrictions will be detrimental to the hospitality industry and they need our support.


Additional Information:

Venues still can't run at full capacity which means businesses are struggling through these difficult times. But now what will make things much worse is the fact that from Friday, 4th December onwards, venues are now being told to stop selling alcohol and to close at 6pm, which will have a devastating impact on the industry. Many of which are family run business, who in the coming weeks, rely on what many would consider to be the busiest time of the year, which is essential for their businesses and livelihoods.





This petition was considered completed by the Petitions Committee at its meeting on 12/01/2021.


The Committee considered the correspondence received and agreed, given that Coronavirus alert level 4 restrictions are now in place across Wales and the issues raised by the petition have been discussed in Plenary on a number of occasions, that the petitions have been overtaken by subsequent events and that there was little further action it could take at this time. The Committee therefore agreed to close the petitions and thank the petitioners.
