Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 provides an indispensable source of reference on liquor licensing law in Scotland. No practitioner who is in any way involved with licensing law can afford to be without a copy of this excellent portable companion, which provides a narrative introduction and full copy of the Act, with section-by-section commentary written by Jack Cummins, a leading Scottish expert on licensing law. The Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 completely overhauls Scottish licensing law, sweeping away the Licensing (Scotland) Act 1976 and introducing a distinctly different system of complex controls. In addition to abolishing fixed licence categories and introducing separate premises and premises licences, it provides licensing boards with greatly enhanced supervisory powers and makes mandatory approved training for those involved in the sale of alcohol. With helpful and easily understood explanations of Scotland's new licensing system, this title provides an indispensable tool for all those who are involved with liquor licensing law.
