Ban the use of Glassware from premises which are licensed for the sale of alcohol
Ban the use of glassware from premises which are licensed for the sale of alcoholto reduce the severity of alcohol-related violence and accidents. This will in turn make premises safer for pubic use, protect community safety and reduce the strain on public services.
The precise number of violent attacks involving glass each year is unknown, although the crime surveys suggest it may run into six figures.
Some estimates put the cost of glass-related violence to the NHS, police and courts at more than £100m a year.
It is illegal to walk around with a knife in your hand so why would we put instant weapons into the hands of extremely alcohol fuelled people ?
How much broken glass have you and your children walked on in the streets? Or trodden on in the toilets at restaurants?
PLEASE sign this petition and make our streets and communities much safer.
