24 hour drinking - the debate

The tenth anniversary of so-called 24 hour drinking is nearly upon us. If you're in London tomorrow, do come and join us at the Institute of Economic Affairs for a debate about it. It should be lively, with the following speakers:

  • Christopher Snowdon, director of lifestyle economics at the Institute of Economic Affairs and author of Drinking, Fast and Slow
  • Jon Foster, Senior Research and Policy Officer, Institute of Alcohol Studies
  • Ian Graham, Central Licensing Unit, Metropolitan Police; Joint Chair of the National Police Chiefs Council Licensing group
  • Alan Miller, Chairman, The Night Time Industries Association
  • Stephanie Lis, Head of Communications, IEA (chair)
  • Brigid Simmonds, Chief Executive, British Beer & Pub Association

In the meantime, here is the video of the Maudsley debate on forcing psychiatric patients to stop smoking.
