Strip Clubs

Volume 480: debated on Monday 6 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport whether the Licensing Act 2003 has been subject to a gender impact assessment, with particular reference to the licensing of lap dancing clubs. (212218)

The Licensing Act 2003, which received Royal Assent in July 2003, and subsequent related legislation have all been subject to required impact assessments. This would have included elements of equality impact, although there has been no gender impact assessment specifically related to entertainment of an adult nature such as lap dancing and similar performances.
