GRTU has this week written to Hon Mario Demarco and Hon Jason Azzopardi re LN 228/2011. GRTU told the Hon Parliamentary Secretaries that recent developments have shown that what GRTU has been stating all along was right. The problem is misbehavior trends in youth and not alcoholism. Alcohol abuse is a symptom not a cause.
There is enough evidence from all centres throughout Europe. The remedy which GRTU supports is one of professional surveillance including use of technology. GRTU will do all that is possible to ensure that a professional approach is adopted.
GRTU reminded the Parliamentary Secretaries that it remains contrary to the provisions of LN228/2011. This is a most unjust imposition on all serious retailers throughout Malta, who never abused but serviced clients who expressed their consumer right to purchase alcohol and beverages at the time of their choice.
GRTU requested a meeting to agree on changes to the Legal Notice and remove the unfair punishment LN.228/2011 has imposed on professional retailers and honest consumers.
