New Clause 3 — Alcohol disorder zones
Crime and Security Bill
John Gummer (Suffolk Coastal, Conservative)
I am sorry to intervene again, but I am trying to avoid the temptation to make a speech. What the Minister is saying is that if a local authority thinks that the measure is desirable for its community, it is unreasonable to say that it should be allowed to make so limited a change. That is a very odd view of locality, and of local people being able to make their own decisions.
