Where does responsibility lie?

Are pub landlords responsible for the actions of their customers after they leave their premises? The answer appears to be yes in the minds of a handful of MPs from across of the main parties. EDM 103 calls on the Government to "grant local authorities mandatory powers to impose a levy on premises throughout the country whose customers cause an unwanted burden on policing and clean-up costs."

The moral and indeed legal responsibility has rested with the landlord. You after all not allowed to serve a drunk.

My local tends to bar people who attract too much attentions.
