Dear Carmarthenshire Council,

Please could you release to me information on how many Licensed Betting Offices were licensed in the borough in each year from 2007 to 2013.

For clarity: I wish to understand the total number of bookmakers licenced in each year 2007-13 and how that has changed over time.

This means that licenced bookmakers whose licences have lapsed, been surrendered or have been revoked need to be included, just information of when the currently licenced premises were first licenced is potentially misleading when analysing the trend over time.

Some councils make their current register available online,
unfortunately this gives just the current number not the historic trend.

Yours faithfully,

Richard Richardson
