Drinks promotions REMINDER

Dear Member,

As you may know, the competition regulator – the JCRA – is currently carrying out a market study into Jersey’s Alcohol Pricing and Promotions. The study has been requested by the Attorney General.

Last year, Deputy Lindsay Ash, successfully got the States to agree to a relaxation of the regulations to allow for price promotions on drinks in on licence premises. The final say on whether a change is introduced rests with the Licensing Assembly.

The JHA has been informed by the Police that some venues are running price promotions on drinks contrary to the Licensing (Jersey) Law 1974. The Community Policing Team have asked us to make it clear that there should be no advertised drinks promotions or offers across the board.

The Attorney General has made his views in relation to drinks promotions clear in the past and those are attached for guidance.

Please, if you are unsure about the current legislation, let us know and we can put you in touch with the Team.
