Volume 498: debated on Monday 26 October 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport pursuant to the answer of 16 October 2009, Official Report, columns 1142-43W, on casinos, what assessment he has made of the progress made by each of the 16 licensing authorities which have won bids for either small or large casinos. (295064)

[holding answer 22 October 2009]: I am aware that some of the 16 local authorities permitted to issue large and small casino premises licences are planning to invite applications for the new premises licences within the next few months. However, it remains the responsibility of the individual licensing authorities themselves as to when they announce their process and timetable for applications.
