Thread Name: A little more news on Licensing
Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
No pubs are going to get entertainment permission free of charge. Village halls etc will get theirs free of charge and churches don't need a Premises Licence.

But the concept is, (for pubs etc) that it will not cost any more to obtain this, on top of what it will cost them to pay for the Premises Licence and the yearly inspection charge (and personal licence).

The bottom line of course is - that we still don't know what the level of these fees will be set at. All the noises from the LAs will indicate that they will not rest until these are set as high as they can be and possibly dictated locally by them (as before).
