Sydney’s lock out laws could soon be a thing of the past.

There's reports Deputy Premier John Barilaro is pushing for the 1.30am lockout times to be scrapped by the end of the year 

Nine news reports the Deputy Premier has sought support from eight cabinet ministers to roll back the controversial laws. 

The laws have been in place since 2014, which prevent patrons from entering premises after 1.30am, with last drinks served at 3am.

The move would be welcomed by the Australian Hotels Association (AHA) who told Nine:

"Venues that do nothing wrong should not be blanketed with draconian measures and it's about time we looked at that," AHA's John Green said. 

However, police say the laws should be extended across the state.

"The laws work, any politician that changes these simple laws will have blood on their hands," Police Association President Tony King said.
