JD Wetherspoon has ended its January sale in Glasgow, in line with the city's new anti-binge drinking policy. The move came after a meeting between Glasgow's licensing board and the company's legal staff. The board's policy banning all discounting and promotional advertising is due to come into effect from 13 January. David Issac, director of legal services at Wetherspoon, said: "We had a very helpful meeting with the board and told them we are happy to comply with their policy. "It was our intention to run a small promotion for a fortnight in January but we have brought that to and end. "We'll have to see how the board's policy works in practice but we have no policy or promotions which would be deemed to encourage binge drinking and don't reckon it will cause us too many problems." Gordon Macdiarmid, the chairman of the licensing board, said: "I'm delighted that following a meeting with senior representatives of Wetherspoons not only will there be no January sale in their premises in Glasgow but they are fully in accord with both the letter and spirit of the board's new anti-binge drinking policy. "This is a first-class example and one which we hope will be followed by all operators in the city."
