Date for new off licence sales closing

From what date do the new rules on closing for off licence sales begin? - is it immediate or from date of annual licence renewal?

The Department of Justice have issued a statement to us saying that the rules on sale of intoxication liquor for consumption off the premises of sale came into force on 30th July 2008 and relate not only to off licence premises sales but also to sale of all alcohol for consumption off premises whether from threatres, pubs, restaurants, hotels, supermarkets or other premises mentioned in the Intoxicating Liqour Act 2008. This means, according to the Department's statement, that these premises cannot sell alcohol for off premises consumption after 10pm on any day after 30th July 2008 regardless of what the licence-holder's licence may provide.
