Dear Sir,

Ref: GC_FoI_09/064

I am writing to confirm that the Gambling Commission has now completed its search for the information which you requested.

A copy of the information is enclosed. Please be aware that the Commission is not responsible for licensing premises. This falls to the local Licensing Authority in which the premises is situated. We receive notification of the surrender of a premises licence from the Local Authority and we can only collate figures once the Local Authorities have notified us. The attached list are those bookmaking premises where a local authority has notified the Commission that a premises licence has been granted and therefore we cannot guarantee the information is complete, accurate or up to date.

The information supplied to you continues to be protected by the Copyright, Designs and Patents Act 1988. You are free to use it for your own purposes, including any non-commercial research you are doing and for the purposes of news reporting. Any other reuse, for example commercial publication, would require the permission of the copyright holder.

If you have any queries about this letter, please contact me. Please remember to quote the reference number above in any future communications.

Yours sincerely,
