Western Cape Schools may be licensed to sell liquor

Liquor - The WC Cabinet has approved changes to the WC Schools Act ("Act") to allow the sale and consumption of liquor on school premises.    Schools will have to apply to the HOD ("Head of Education") for approval and the HOD will authorise a governing body to allow the sale of liquor.   This will allow fund-raising functions to be licensed to sell liquor on school premises, which raises much needed revenue for most schools to use to the advantage of their learners.   It was nearly impossible to obtain a liquor licence for such functions under the current Act. 

The Draft Bill will now be published for final comments, following which it will be introduced to parliament for discussion, approval and implementation.
