National statistics on Entertainment Licensing are produced by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport, according to the arrangements approved by the UK Statistics Authority.
Alcohol, entertainment and late night refreshment licensing statistics were formerly produced by DCMS. There was no data collection in 2011. Alcohol and late night refreshment statistics (a subset of these statistics) are now published by the Home Office.
|To reduce the administrative burden on local authorities, there is no statistical collection exercise for the year ending March 2015. The data collection will be resumed for the year ending March 2016 with a publication of 2016 data in December 2016.

This release is published in accordance with the Code of Practice for Official Statistics (2009), as produced by the UK Statistics Authority (UKSA). The UKSA has the overall objective of promoting and safeguarding the production and publication of official statistics that serve the public good. It monitors and reports on all official statistics, and promotes good practice in this area.
To reduce the administrative burden both on LAs and the DCMS and Home Office statistics teams, DCMS does not intend to publish entertainment licensing collection data for the year ending March 2015. The main use of the collection is to monitor the impact of new and amended legislation and the intention is to collect when needed. The Home Office (who collect these data on behalf of DCMS) will be resuming the collection for year ending March 2016 and we intend to publish these data in Autumn 2016.
