New spiking prevention measures announced by the Home Office

The Home Office has announced a new package of measures to prevent spiking. This includes changes to legislation, training more door staff and an online spiking tool that allows victims to anonymously report any incidents.

Our response

Our Chief Executive Kate Nicholls said: “The safety of customers is a top priority for hospitality businesses, so highlighting and informing measures to prevent spiking is important.

Education and proper training are essential and hospitality businesses continue to work tirelessly to prevent spiking.

“We’re committed to working with sector partners to provide venues with up-to-date advice and guidance on best practice to prevent spiking, as well as with the Home Office on measures like these.”
