Only 75 per cent of the 190,000 licensed premises in England and Wales – which range from pubs and clubs to restaurants and village halls – had submitted applications for the new alcohol licences by Saturday’s deadline (August 6).

The figure – which was released by the Department of Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) on 5 August – does not, however, include any applications that may have been received on Saturday.

The DCMS does not yet have a breakdown of which types of premises have applied, although the British Beer and Pub Association (BBPA) reported last week that 90 per cent of pubs had complied and predicted that almost 100 per cent of pubs would submit their applications before the deadline.

The BBPA also estimates that 90 per cent of pubs have applied to extend their opening hours beyond the current 11pm limit – typically to between midnight and 3am – while only one or two per cent of pubs are believed to have applied for 24-hour licences.

DCMS predicts that two thirds of all premises have applied to vary their licence in some way. Details: www.culture.gov.uk
