To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department how many game licences were issued in the 1989–90 season; and what were the net revenues to his Department from the issue of such licences.

Mrs. Rumbold

47,432 game licences were issued in Great Britain in the financial year 1989–90 and £245,812 was raised in revenue. The costs of issuing game licences are borne by the Home Office and came to a total of £172,406, but the revenue passes to local authorities.
