Alliance Party
A message from party leader Naomi Long:

As you will be aware, Alliance has championed local producers and distillers and supported the recent reforms to modernise NI licensing laws; however, we also believe that the reforms did not go far enough.

My colleague, Kellie Armstrong, proposed a number of additional changes, to support tap rooms and more flexible licencing. The need for additional licences is also an issue of which we are aware and one which requires addressing.
I am therefore happy to confirm that Alliance supports the CAMRA campaign and I am emailing to confirm our support.
I look forward to working with you after May 5th to progress this issue.
Best regards
Naomi Long
Alliance Party Leader
