Labour will not vote to end 10pm curfew in English pubs

Labour will not vote down the 10pm curfew for English pubs in the Commons next week, Sir Keir Starmer has said.

The Labour leader argued that it was not in the national interest to oppose the rule in the Commons vote next Tuesday as that would leave no restrictions.

But Sir Keir said the government should “acknowledge the 10pm curfew isn’t working as anticipated”.
