Mr Gates said he was familiar with such schemes after being involved in a Pubwatch scheme in Yeovil, Somerset.
He said: "I have first-hand experience of the partnership really working. It helps licensees concentrate on providing quality service to customers by deterring the problem factor with a small minority of people, that can effect people's enjoyment in our premises and also the residents' quality of life in the town."
