bar owners would have to provide healthy-eating advice to their customers. The requirement is contained in a discussion document setting out a series of new conditions for prospective publicans.no doubt jack will get up in holyrood & explain how he has researchers estimating how many lives this would save & that the number will be exactly the number he first thought. Remember how he promised the smoking ban would save 1,000 lives a year.
They are due to be imposed by 2009 under the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005, which lays down new guideline objectives for the industry in areas such as crime prevention and public health.
In the best traditions of bureaucracy who insist that any policy is either to early to be worth discussing, or to late to change at this stage.
