It is not possible to identify how much has been raised from fines imposed for convictions under the Licensing Act 2003, as the Ministry of Justice does not hold this information. This is because fine enforcement and collection occurs at individual local centres, with separate accounts set-up for each offender into which are paid consolidated penalty requirements (for example, compensation, victim surcharges and fines). It is therefore not possible to disaggregate these amounts by offence and payment type.
