Bookmakers: Licensing

Volume 464: debated on Tuesday 9 October 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what the average cost of a bookmaker's premises licence is in each local authority in England and Wales. (155610)

The Department does not gather information on the average cost of a bookmaker's premises licences in each local authority in England and Wales. The Secretary of State has set maximum fee levels for all classes and types of premises licence. The Gambling (Premises Licence Fees) (England and Wales) Regulations 2007 (SI No. 479) require licensing authorities in England and Wales to determine the fee for each type of licence on a cost recovery basis.
