The committee is responsible for all matters under the Licensing Act 2003 and the Gambling Act 2005. The 2003 Act concerns the regulation of the sale and supply of alcohol, the provision of entertainment and the provision of late night refreshment. The 2005 Act covers the control and licensing of gambling (namely gaming, betting and lotteries).
The committee agrees the licensing policy and the gambling policy under the relevant Acts. It has sub-committees called Licensing Panels to deal with particular applications. It seldom meets.
