I didnt know about any of the paperwork although is it just your company and not a legal requirement?
To be honest even if people dont get served they still can get it through other sources such as over 18 mates and their parents or as some do get a fake ID which I will admit this new ID card scheme will make harder to do as they probably do it by chip instead of looking.
I think the new 24 hour drinking has tightened things up as well round the country from what I can see, places just cant take the risks anymore its a shame because going down the pub was part of the culture but with this smoking ban etc I think the Goverment dont want us to enjoy a drink.
Perhaps they all want us to use drugs instead if drink. Dealers put no age limit on them?
