Politicians to debate extending pub opening times for Queen's 90th birthday

Politicians are to debate whether to extend opening hours for Jersey pubs during the Queen's 90th birthday.

The proposition would allow bars to serve alcohol until 1 am on the 10th and 11th of June.

The move has already been agreed for England and Wales.

Constable Steve Pallet, Assistant Minister for Economic Development, says it seems 'appropriate' that Jersey follows suit so islanders can have 'the same chance to celebrate the Her Majesty’s 90th birthday.'
