Hotels: DVD

Volume 496: debated on Monday 20 July 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport what recent discussions he has had with VisitEngland on its guidance to hoteliers on the DVD concierge licence. (287906)

VisitEngland recently explained in its ‘Quality Edge’ magazine (which is distributed to all properties quality assessed by VisitEngland) that under copyright law businesses such as bed and breakfast accommodation should purchase a licence if DVDs are made available to guests.

I have had no discussions with VisitEngland about this matter.
