§ Ms Shipley
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what multi-agency measures his Department is taking to tackle disorder within licensed premises. 
§ Mr. George Howarth
We are determined to tackle alcohol-related disorder. We have agreed with the drinks industry a significant increase in the use of toughened glasses, to reduce injuries caused by "glassings". We have reminded the courts of their exclusion order powers to prohibit from licensed premises anyone convicted of a violent offence there. We are considering how the licensing regime might deal more effectively with premises which are the focus of disorder.
