Sir: John Murphy implies in his letter (31 January) that the public in France do not get drunk in bars as it is an offence to be drunk in public, and to serve someone who is drunk. The same laws do exist in England and Wales, but the public - and a surprising number of licensees - appear to be unaware or dismissive of the law. Maybe we should be displaying the relevant Acts in bars here.
