The position is that section 19 of the Intoxicating Liquor Act 2000 made provision for the upgrading of restricted licences, including six-day licences, under certain conditions, including a specific condition that applications to the Revenue Commissioners for such upgrading be made within one year of the entry into force of that Act. Notwithstanding the upgrading scheme in 2000, I understand that a small number of restricted licences remain in existence and I intend to provide a further opportunity to upgrade these remaining licences in the Sale of Alcohol Bill which forms part of the Government's Legislation Programme published on 17 September 2014.
