British Mourn Loss Of Pub Drinkers By ORANVILLE WATTS Associated Press Writer LONDON (AP) — Britain's new Bon't-drive-after-drinking law, one month old, is changing things. Trade has slumped by more than 20 per cent at Vincent Parsons' pub The Swan, in the London "suburb of West Drayton. "It's splitting up old friendships, it's going to leave a gap in people's lives," Parsons says. "A good pub is like a safety valve. You can let off steam about your job or the state or the nation or your wife. But who is going to stand around drinking tomato juice all night?" Parsons is one of thousands of disgruntled British publicans complaining about the new law, which authorizes police to carry out random roadside checks with a breath-test instrument railed a breathalyser, The worst-hit pubs are those in country areas which depend largely on motorists. Faced with dwindling bar sales, some of the tavern owners have even threatened to organize a nationwide pub strike and a protest march on government offices. First police figures, however, shojv.that the breathalyser law is working. In one area of Yorkshire accidents have dropped nearly 40 per cent. But it is likely to be early next year before an official judgment is passed on the breathalyser method. Motorists' organizations are expressing concern at the number of drivers who are being tested and found fit to drive. They feel the police should only stop motorists who are obviously suspicious. In the spot checks drivers are asked to breathe into a tube.

Hotels throughout Britain have reported scores of canceled functions for fear of that and other cities. Breweries hope increased drinking at home will cut down losses. But in the. country pubs, the impact has been hard. "That's right there'll be no party this Christmas?" asked a husky beer drinker in The Swan. "Afraid so," said the barman.
