The British Retail Consortium wants to see all existing industry and local proof of age schemes swept away in favour of one UK-wide scheme, according to director general Bill Moyes. Speaking as industry stakeholder groups prepared to meet to decide on the way forward for proof of age schemes, Moyes said: "The law is daft on proof of age, with five age thresholds and around 20 age restricted products. We want to see one government proof of age scheme for all over-12s ­ something like Scotland's Young Scot card." He said: "The government is officially launching its Connexions card to reward young people in education this autumn. We want it to invest what for it is a trivial amount of money to put our PASS hallmark on all these cards." {{NEWS }}
