Decision looms for Morley pub
Councillors on Leeds City Council’s Licensing Committee will pass judgement on the Slip Inn pub at a meeting held today to decide whether or not it should have its licence revoked.
The pub on Albion Street, Morley, was shut down in March last year following a review requested by Morley Neighbourhood Policing Team.
Councillors on the committee had been told that the pub had become a focus of anti-social behaviour and there had been several brawls.
The pub re-opened on appeal, but was told that any further breaches of its licensing obligations would be met with a withdrawal of its license, which could lead to its closure.
Coun Robert Finnigan, who supports the review, said: “The Slip Inn was given an opportunity at a previous Licensing Committee meeting to clean up their act - but they have failed to do so.”
Coun Judith Elliott said: “We will not tolerate the behaviour which has been going on at the Slip Inn.
“We fully support the police with their request for a review and will be attending the hearing to speak up on behalf of residents.”
