Local Government Finance

Volume 488: debated on Wednesday 25 February 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport which of the recommendations made by the Independent Licensing Fees Review Panel relating to local authority revenue and costs have been implemented to date. (256715)

The Independent Licensing Fees Review Panel made recommendations on future fee levels, and identified a shortfall between local authority costs and income during the period of transition. The response to these matters needs to be agreed across Government and I hope to be able to respond shortly.
