To ask the Minister of State, Department for Business, Innovation and Skills how many licensees of (a) pubs, (b) restaurants and (c) bars (i) applied for and (ii) were (A) granted and (B) refused licences to perform live music in (1) Montgomeryshire and (2) England in each year since 2007; and if he will make a statement.
I have been asked to reply.
The Department for Culture, Media and Sport does not collate data specifically on premises licence applications for the provision of live music, and does not collate data by premises type. This is because the Licensing Act 2003 defines activities not premises type.
The number of premises licences with live music provisions in the Licensing Authority of Powys was 505 on
The estimated total premises licences with live music provisions in England and Wales was 75,200 on
