Glass ban plea for pubs
NIGHTCLUBS and pubs where violent fights regularly break out should be forced to serve drinks in plastic bottles and cups, a Welsh MP has said.
Labour's Ian Lucas said local authorities should be allowed to ban venues from serving drinks in glasses where there had been a history of assaults.
Too many youngsters were being left with deep scarring after being glassed in clubs and pubs, he said.
Proposing his Plastic Glasses and Bottles (Mandatory Use) Bill, Mr Lucas (Wrexham) said: "Violent incidents and attacks on our constituents, particularly young people, remain common. The Government needs to ensure that local authorities use the powers they have to promote the use of plastic bottles in pubs and clubs where there is a history of violent incidents."
