Alcohol Industry Association chairperson said: "The Gazette notice appears authentic and it's something that we were expecting. "Government is acting to safeguard health and while we would have hoped they would perhaps just limit the operating hours, we also understand their decision because these are gathering places.

"We hope that the measures will be short lived.

"The impact on the industry will definitely be huge."
