“I have nothing further to add to my previous response”
A Simply Test For Paul

A Challenge To Paul
The current signage in many places across the East Riding including Beverley and Bridlington incorrectly states “The consumption of alcohol in this area is restricted by order” but the order states “The consumption of alcohol in the area is prohibited by order”.
