Question

The Bottle Stop campaign is a campaign to make plastic glasses and bottles mandatory in clubs and pubs that have had an unacceptable number of attacks involving the glass containers that drinks are served in. Do you agree that this action could save lives, and that, though it is not the only step to be taken, it should be supported? If so, what action will the Mayor take to ensure this measure is introduced by the relevant authorities?

The Metropolitan Police Service already encourages the use of glassware alternatives and, where glass is used, makes sure that premises make arrangements for regular glass collection by staff and the prevention of removal from the premises.

The Bottle Stop campaign is a good voluntary initiative.
