Mr. Sutcliffe: My Department is already taking steps to reduce the unnecessary printing of e-mails. My Department has introduced multifunctional printing devices which allow double-sided printing as default. Staff are encouraged as part of the environmental management system to conserve paper by reducing the amount of printing generally. My Department is also introducing an electronic content management system which means that e-mails will no longer need to be printed for the Department’s formal record.

(3) how many applications for (a) operating, (b) premises and (c) personal licences the Gambling Commission declined in each year since 2005. [181393]

Mr. Sutcliffe: The table shows the number of applications for operating and personal licences that were received by the Gambling Commission under the Gambling Act 2005 (the 2005 Act) and their equivalents under the previous legislation, the Gaming Act 1968 (the 1968 Act). It also shows numbers of applications which were withdrawn by applicants or declined by the Gambling Commission, and licences and certificates revoked by the Gambling Commission.

Information relating to the application for society lottery registrations under the Lotteries and Amusements Act 1976 is not included in the table.

The figures for the 1968 Act relate to each financial year listed and those for the 2005 Act to the calendar year of 2007. Applications for operating and personal licences under the 2005 Act could be received from January 2007, prior to the Act coming fully into force on 1 September 2007.

Figures for premises licences under the 2005 Act are not yet available. Licensing authorities are responsible for considering and issuing gambling premises licences under the 2005 Act. They are expected to send their first annual returns to the Gambling Commission by the end of January 2008.
