§ Mr. Ashdown
asked the Paymaster General if he intends to conduct an exercise to examine the impact of local governmental licensing arrangements upon business similar to that exercise currently being undertaken by the enterprise unit on central Government licensing.
§ Mr. Trippier
Yes. The enterprise and deregulation unit is discussing with the local authority associations how to take forward this second stage of the review. As with licensing requirements imposed by central Government, views will be sought from business interests on the impact of local requirements.
