Alcohol Policy (Correction to Written Answer)

Volume 515: debated on Thursday 16 September 2010

I regret to inform the House that there was an inaccuracy in an answer given by the hon. Member for Tynemouth (Mr Campbell), in answer to parliamentary question 313016 on 3 March 2010, Official Report, column 1264W.

The response indicated that eight fines had been issued in 2008 for the offence of persistently selling alcohol to children (section 147A of the Licensing Act 2003) with an average fine of £968.75.

I can confirm that in fact in 2008, four fines were issued for this offence, and the average fine amount was £1,713.
