Lap dancing itself is not a licensable activity under the Licensing Act 2003, which controls activities such as "the performance of dance" but has no role in censoring the content of any such performance. The Government currently have no plans to change the regime for permitted temporary activities contained in the Licensing Act 2003 or to give it a new role involving censorship. I am aware that concerns regarding the use of temporary events notices for lapdancing events were raised during the House of Commons committee stage of the Policing and Crime Bill. In response, the Minister with responsibility for crime reduction, the Under-Secretary of State for the Home Department, my hon. Friend Mr. Campbell stated that he would discuss the issue with the Department for Culture, Media and Sport. These discussions are ongoing.
