This Time, The Nanny State Has Gone Too Far!

Banning Happy Hour?

The measures, designed to reduce drink-fuelled violence and injuries, would be announced by the Government a week on Monday, said The Daily Telegraph.

A Department for Health spokeswoman said research on the issue had been commissioned but was unable to comment on any planned announcements.

The Telegraph reported that the code of conduct, binding on pubs and clubs, would ban 'time-limited' cut-price drink offers, or happy hours.

Other areas to be curbed include offers of free drinks for women, while alcoholic containers could feature similar health warnings to those on cigarette packets.
