1 Does the council maintain a publicly accessible register of all businesses licensed under the AAL regulations, and if so, where can it be found.

2 If the council does not maintain a publicly accessible register of all businesses licensed under the AAL regulations, has this been as a result of a specific decision or otherwise. Please provide details of relevant option.

3 If the council does not maintain a register, please detail all businesses in the Councils area that are licensed under the AAL regulations for the selling of animals as pets, including any star rating gained.

4 Since the introduction of the AAL regulation, have any businesses been refused a licence to sell animals as pets, or had such a licence revoked.
