P-06-1165 Ban the sale and consumption of alcohol within the Senedd



This petition was submitted by Russell Gwilym Morris, having collected a total of 91 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

We call upon the Senedd to ban the sale and consumption of alcohol within the Senedd. The Senedd is a workplace and most workplaces won't allow alcohol on their premises. There are also many establishments within the capital that Members of the Senedd can go to after a days work to unwind, just the same as the rest of the citizens in Wales do.


People already feel there is a them and us culture within politics, this would go a little way to help changing that perception.
