Sefton Council responded that they have NOT requested the introduction of plastic glasses and attached a link to the Licensing register which shows the Premises License in full for the Scarisbrick Hotel,within which the Barons Bar operates, and does not stipulate the requirement for plastic glasses. http://www.sefton.gov.uk/default.aspx?page=7801. The Licensing Officer suggests it may be the property owners Britannia Hotels who are responsible for the voluntary introduction of polycarbonates in all ground floor bars or Merseyside Police may have suggested it, however it is ultimately still the decision of the owners of the property.
