We note that under new section 26A(3) references to sterling will include references to the equivalent amount in other currencies on Royal Assent, and that the date when the licence is granted rather than when the application is received is the applicable date. It would be helpful if the Minister could clarify the difference between the date when the licence was granted and the date when the application was received. If it is a matter of writing a letter, that will be more than satisfactory.
