a Home Office spokesman said:
"The fact that there are not any Alcohol Disorder Zones does not suggest that they are not working. Alcohol disorder zones are one of many important tools available to local authorities and police but we have always stressed that they should be used as a last resort."

Um! Is it me, or is there some way that something which does not exist is ‘working’. If ADZs are ‘one of the most important tools available’ can someone explain why they have not been implemented in the same way that car parking laws are so enforced
