Drink prohibition on towns is dropped

Plans to impose alcohol prohibition for whole towns or cities on football match days have been dropped as part of a new law to punish hooligans. The prohibition, introduced in France last year for England World Cup games, was intended to prevent trouble if England win the right to host the tournament in 2006.

But it has been dropped for a new Football Bill* published yesterday after protests from the drinks and retail industries and concerns that it would have far too much impact on people who had nothing to do with football.

Supermarkets and pubs would have been closed and anyone carrying alcohol would have faced arrest. But the Bill, which the Government aims to get through Parliament before the Euro 2000 tournament in Belgium and Holland, still contains new powers to end the scandal of English hooligans getting into trouble abroad.

Any fans convicted of a football-related offence at home will automatically be given a new international order to stop them from travelling to watch England abroad for up to 10 years. They will have to surrender their passports to a named police station five days before each game and courts can also prevent them from travelling to Europe to watch their club side.
