(a) “duty” is to be construed in accordance with the Alcoholic Liquor Duties Act 1979;
(b) “permitted price” is the price found by applying the formula -

5. (1) Sub-paragraph (2) applies where the permitted price given by Paragraph (b) of paragraph2 on a day (“the first day”) would be different from the permitted price on the next day (“the second day”) as a result of a change to the rate of duty or value added tax.

Annex 2 - Conditions consistent with the Club Operating Schedule
1. Noise from amplified and non-amplified music, singing and speech arising from regulated entertainment at the premises between the hours of 23:00 and 07:00 shall not be audible inside habitable rooms of noise sensitive properties in the vicinity.
Licensees are advised to carry out a simple “sound check” outside the nearest noise sensitive property by listening to the music etc. coming from regulated entertainment. If the music etc. is clearly audible then it is likely that this condition is being breached. Steps should then be taken to reduce the volume of the noise.
For the purpose of providing an objective standard to assess whether this condition is being complied with or not, noise shall be considered not to be audible if:
) the measurement of sound when music etc is on (expressed as LAeq, 1min) does not exceed the measurement of sound (expressed as LA90, 5min) when the music is off, and
) the measurement of sound in each 1/3rd octave band between 40Hz and 160 Hz when music is on (expressed as L10, 1min) does not exceed the measurement of sound in the same 1/3rd octave bands between 40Hz and 160Hz when the music is off (expressed as L90, 5min)
All measurements to be taken within the habitable room normally occupied at the time in question, using a Type 1 integrating-averaging sound level meter compliant with BS EN 60804, with either windows open for normal ventilation or closed, whichever situation causes greater noise disturbance.
2. All external doors and windows to the room/s where regulated entertainment is being provided shall remain closed during the course of the entertainment, other than for normal access and egress.
You can help facilitate patrons leaving in a quiet manner through promoting a ‘calm down’ period at the end of the night. Finish any “lively” entertainment (disco, live music, etc) about 30 minutes before the bar closes and play softer background music. Continue to sell water, soft drinks and other non-alcoholic beverages and allow customers to leave naturally.
3. Persons under 18 years of age are not to be permitted to the Club when live entertainment is deemed to be suitable for adults only.
4. Persons under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
5. Persons under the age of 16 shall not be permitted to work behind the bar.
6. Persons under 18 years of age are not permitted to approach the bar serving area at any time.
7. All children must vacate the premises by 23.30pm.
8. Health & Safety and Fire equipment are to be tested and inspected annually by appropriately qualified personnel/companies and certificates issued.
