The desire for a simplification of age restricted sales was identified as a strong theme amongst responses, though the proposal to deregulate the sale of liqueur confectionery was not specifically referenced in the consultation. Retailers currently have to comply with a variety of regulations across a range of age-restricted products, and this proposal is one of a number of proposals in the Deregulation Bill aimed at simplifying legislation related to age-restricted sales.</p><p>The purpose of this repeal is to remove unnecessary burdens from businesses. There is no evidence to suggest that children consume liqueur confectionery for the purposes of intoxication and we do not expect this to change as a result of this repeal.</p><p> </p>
