star this property answer text <p>The Gangmasters Licensing Authority (GLA) have established Licensing Standards against which applicants and existing licence holders are assessed. They are all legal requirements to protect workers from poor treatment and exploitation and set out the conditions that must be met to obtain and hold a GLA licence.</p><p>The Standards are published on the GLA website at:-</p><p>http://www.gla.gov.uk/Guidance/Information-on-Licensing/Licencing-Standards/. They include treatment of workers, accommodation and working conditions among others. Any non-compliance with the Standards is treated very seriously and would bear on the risk a licence holder poses. In addition, the GLA receives intelligence from partner agencies, such as police forces, about businesses which would also be taken into account in assessing risk. The GLA can inspect businesses where there are concerns.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Licensing authorities have powers under the Licensing Act 2003 to restrict the hours in which alcohol is sold, if it is appropriate for the promotion of the licensing objectives. Decisions are based on individual consideration of each premises application, as appropriate for the promotion of the licensing objectives and in line with the licensing authority’s statement of licensing policy.</p><p>Early morning alcohol restriction orders (EMRO) allow a licensing authority to restrict the sale of alcohol between midnight and 6am. EMROs are designed to address recurring problems such as high levels of alcohol-related crime and disorder in specific areas at specific times; serious public nuisance; and other instances of alcohol-related anti-social behaviour which is not directly attributable to specific premises. Licensing authorities may decide to implement a Cumulative Impact Policy (CIP) where an exceptional number of licensed premises concentrated in one area have a cumulative impact on the promotion of the licensing objectives in that area. The CIP creates a rebuttable presumption that applications for premises licences which are likely to add to the existing cumulative impact will normally be refused or subject to certain limitations. The Government keeps these powers under review, but there are currently no plans to create additional new powers for licensing authorities.</p>
