§ Mr. Lidington
To ask the Chancellor of the Exchequer in how many cases since July 2001 HM Customs and Excise(a) removed a National Lottery terminal from a trader convicted of selling unmarked tobacco products, (b) objected to the renewal of a liquor licence and (c) asked a franchise-owner to take action against a franchisee. 
§ Mr. Boateng
Customs notify Camelot when a lottery terminal holder has been convicted of an excise offence. Any decision to remove the lottery terminal remains with Camelot. Since April 2001, Customs have not sent any notifications to Camelot.
Customs notify the police when a person holding a liquor licence has excise goods seized, or is convicted of an excise offence. The police are responsible for lodging any objections to the renewal of a liquor licence. Since April 2001, Customs have notified the police on one occasion.
The information requested relating to franchise owners is not held centrally by Customs and Excise.
