Proposals to slotxo สมัครสมาชิก extend opening times for pubs and nightclubs in Northern Ireland have taken another step towards becoming law.
It was a late night at Stormont as MLAs stayed to the early hours of Wednesday debating legislation to modernise NI's 25-year-old licensing laws.
The bill aims to allow pubs and clubs to serve alcohol for an extra hour, until 02:00, almost every weekend.
It also proposes removing restrictions around Easter drinking.
It is thought the legislation could pass its final stage in the assembly by the end of the month, with most of the changes then becoming law from October.
Alcohol in cinemas?
The proposals have been a very long time in the making, with Stormont first putting forward changes eight years ago.
A previous bill to change Northern Ireland's licensing laws began its legislative passage in 2016, but the assembly collapsed in January 2017 amid a bitter row between the DUP and Sinn Féin, who share power together at Stormont.
As the lengthy debate began on Tuesday evening, Speaker Alex Maskey said it may run until the "early hours of the morning and maybe some of us will be driven to drink afterwards".
Communities Minister Deirdre Hargey described the proposals as a "great move which brings our drinking laws into the 21st Century".
After debating 63 amendments, the Licensing and Registration of Clubs Bill passed its consideration stage in the early hours of the morning.
Some of assembly members who took part in the debate, including Alliance MLA Kellie Armstrong and DUP Chief Whip Joanne Bunting, tweeted photos as they left work after 03:00 BST.
