UK pubs cannot sell alcohol whenever they wish, as opening times are governed by licensing laws. Parts of Wales once had different licensing regulations from England including a ban on Sunday opening: see http://www.culture.gov.uk/reference_library/media_releases/2726.aspx/


I was wondering why the welsh part of the local pub was prohibited to sell alcohol.It is an universal fact that alcohols are sold at pubs,where else.
