Liquor license amendment passes first reading in lower house

An amendment that introduces liquor licenses in the Czech Republic passed through the lower house of Parliament without changes in the first reading. The amendment will now be assessed by the Commerce Committee which will return it to the deputies. The Czech Confederation of Commerce and Tourism said that the amendment is not strict enough, allowing any business owner to acquire the liquor license without checking their financial and business standing.
