And now the news for the East Midlands.

:00:19.:00:20.

First tonight, hundreds of bars and clubs in Nottingham will now have to

:00:21.:00:24.

pay a levy of up to ?4,500 to help pay for late`night policing.

:00:25.:00:27.

The City Council passed the measure today, saying it's not right that

:00:28.:00:30.

But owners say it's an unfahr tax and could lead to more violdnce

:00:31.:00:34.

On a Saturday night, up to 40,0 0 revellers descended to Notthngham.

:00:35.:00:49.

The City Council thinks it hs wrong at all council taxpayers have to pay

:00:50.:00:52.

the additional policing and clean`up costs caused by bars and cltbs which

:00:53.:00:58.

stay open. It cost around ?0.5 million per year to police

:00:59.:01:02.

alcohol`related incidents bdtween midnight and six a.m.. The levy

:01:03.:01:06.

would apply to 260 licensed venues in the city, and the charge will

:01:07.:01:11.

vary between ?304,500 per ydar, depending on the rateable v`lue how

:01:12.:01:16.

much the business relies on the sale of alcohol for its income. The 00

:01:17.:01:20.

members of the Business Improvement District will be exempt, because

:01:21.:01:24.

their membership fee alreadx pays for projects to help improvd

:01:25.:01:28.

night`time safety. Projects such as cinemas, theatres and bingo halls

:01:29.:01:32.

will also be exempt. This m`n runs a bar in the city centre, and is also

:01:33.:01:41.

a street pastor. She is app`lled that the levy is being imposed. It

:01:42.:01:45.

is an unfair levy on bars and clubs in the city. I think as manx bars

:01:46.:01:49.

and clubs close earlier to `void it, it will cause violence `s people

:01:50.:01:52.

all hit the streets at the same time, meaning the city will get a

:01:53.:01:56.

bad name. I also have a concern about the loss of jobs, bec`use I

:01:57.:01:59.

believe that as bars close darlier to avoid the levy, it will result in

:02:00.:02:04.

about 375 jobs being lost for young people, and I think the council is

:02:05.:02:08.

not being honest about it. Ht is not the levy will own up to ?200,00 per

:02:09.:02:13.

year to paper one extra polhcemen and two community officers. It comes

:02:14.:02:16.

a divorce in November, and has been welcomed by the police.

:02:17.:02:19.

Three veteran East Midlands MPs have stepped down as governlent

:02:20.:02:22.

ministers tonight as David Cameron refreshes his top tdam.

:02:23.:02:24.

So far, the reshuffle has sden Ken Clarke, Alan Duncan and

:02:25.:02:27.

Well, our political editor John Hess is here in the studio.

:02:28.:02:35.

John, what do you make of the changes so far?

:02:36.:02:38.

Well, let's start with Rushcliffe's Ken Clarke,

:02:39.:02:39.

because his decision to leave the government ends a front bench career

:02:40.:02:42.

He served both in Mrs Thatcher's government and as Chancellor

:02:43.:02:46.

And he returned to cabinet government when David Cameron

:02:47.:02:51.

appointed him Justice Secretary and Lord Chancellor

:02:52.:02:55.

Tonight, this was Ken Clarke entering

:02:56.:03:04.

Downing Street, and he confdssed to reporters that he had been rather

:03:05.:03:07.

He says he'll carry on MP for Rushcliffe.

:03:08.:03:12.

But he hinted that at 74, hd was ready to hand over the nightly

:03:13.:03:15.

responsible of reading the contents of those government red boxds.

:03:16.:03:19.

So is the decision of Alan Duncan and Andrew Robathan a surprhse?

:03:20.:03:25.

I think it illustrates the scale of David Cameron's ministerial changes.

:03:26.:03:31.

Alan Duncan, the Rutland and Melton MP, had been an

:03:32.:03:40.

International Development mhnister since the 2010 general election

:03:41.:03:46.

And Andrew Robathan, the MP for South Leicestershire, is 62, and had

:03:47.:03:51.

But these changes now clear the way for David Cameron to promotd some of

:03:52.:04:06.

the 2010 intake of Conservative MPs. There will be a lot of changes and

:04:07.:04:07.
