Strip Clubs

Volume 475: debated on Monday 12 May 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what estimate his Department has made of the change in the number of lap-dancing clubs licensed by local authorities since the introduction of the Licensing Act 2003. (205404)

The Department does not hold this information. As part of its data collection in connection with the Alcohol, Entertainment and Late Night Refreshment Licensing Statistical Bulletin, which was published on 8 November 2007, the Department has broadly recorded a number of licensable activities that have been carried out under the 2003 Act. However, these data are not broken down into specific types of entertainment, such as lap dancing.
