Almost three quarters of people tend to visit the pub as often as they
did before the smoking ban (73 per cent) with 16 per cent reporting
that they now go more often. 89%. (consumption has fallen)
The remaining 11 per cent said they

This had led to an increase in violent crime
(fueled by government restriction and its enabled PC pets/malice and also the state lies and deception to create hysteria and neurosis and though it social conformity). (bad) (& less freedom)
extended hours resulted in a drop in crime rate. (good) (& more freedom)
this points to a frigid-ification of bars by the pro-violent-crime lobby (ianna-Diana)
£41 billion sales alchole, £28 billion public-places:
"Britain's binge drinking culture is costing the country £20 billion a year, according to a government report.
The study by the Prime Minister's Strategy Unit shows 17 million working days are lost to hangovers and drink-related illness each year.
The annual cost to employers is estimated to be £6.4 billion while the cost to the NHS is in the region of £1.7bn.
Billions more are spent clearing up alcohol-related crime [£7.4 billion] and social problems.[£4.7 billion]
In addition, alcohol-related problems are responsible for 22,000 premature deaths each year.However, the authors of the report said that even these figures may be a conservative estimate.
They found that there are 1.2 million incidents of alcohol-related violence a year.
Around 40% of A&E admissions are alcohol-related. Between midnight and 5am that figure rises to 70%.
Alcohol-related accidents and illnesses land around 150,000 people in hospital each year.
Up to 1.3 million children are affected by parents with drink problems, the report said." BBC 2003.
"The annual cost of alcohol-related crime and public disorder has been estimated at £7.3bn, the cost to employers has been put at £6.4bn." - BBC 2004. ...
"Doctors say the NHS cannot cope.
Palani Muthu, a consultant in A&E at Darlington Memorial Hospital, told the BBC: "I think alcohol puts a huge strain on the health service, in terms of the cost and in terms of it being a very stressful situation for the staff.
"That increases the staff leaving the NHS."
He said most incidents involved verbal abuse.
Darlington is currently trying to deal with problem drinking by arming its city patrol wardens with hats with hidden cameras.""
This means the tax-payer is subsidizing bars-clubs private-profits.
(capitalism could not spend 50% of take (gross) on the clean up operation - or 60% incase of bars-clubs-resta who are the main liable culprit). There-for this private-profit scam is government funded or covered-for. Costs country £21 billion year (government £14.6 billion gross)
Governemnt loss: -$7.6 billion net. (14.6 gross - 7 tax)
also loss: government advertizing (not included, hidden) £141 million. extra. (ie £8 billion)
"The government should develop mass media campaigns to curb excessive drinking, funded at the same level as its drink-drive campaigns over the years." " -isa uk.
in 2002 £17 billion spent in pubs, £1.7 billion in clubs. axe the beer tax campaigneres!
This is only the short view (not including hidden costs of damaged lives).
