HC Deb 10 November 2000 vol 356 c430W
Mr. Rowe

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will estimate the cost to an applicant of applying for(a) a personal licence and (b) a premises licence under the proposals contained in the Government's publication "Modernisation of our licensing laws". [137091]

Mr. Mike O'Brien

Appendix 4 of the White Paper "Time for Reform: Proposals for the Modernisation of Our Licensing Laws", published on 10 April this year, sets out a full regulatory impact assessment, including details of our estimates of the fees, costs and charges likely to arise in obtaining both personal and premises licences. We are continuing to discuss these estimates with the Local Government Association and the hospitality and leisure industry, and more detailed work will be needed before final decisions are made in respect of the fee and charges structure.
