Blackpool EMRO – BBPA’s Brigid Simmonds comments


Commenting on the decision by Blackpool Council to unanimously reject an EMRO (Early Morning Restriction Order), Brigid Simmonds, BBPA Chief Executive, said:

“This is very good news. Blackpool has considered the evidence, from ourselves and others, in very great detail, and have understood the damage an EMRO would have inflicted on the local trade.

“I hope other councils take heed. Making partnerships work, to tackle any late night problems, has got to be a better way forward.”

Notes to editors:

The British Beer & Pub Association is the UK’s leading organisation representing the brewing and pub sector. Its members account for 96% of the beer brewed in the UK and own nearly two thirds of Britain’s 49,500 pubs.
