Explanatory Memorandum to Betting and Gaming (Northern Ireland) Order 2004

Article 5:  Bookmaking office licences

This Article requires an application for the grant of a bookmaking office licence to be made to a county court, rather than a court of summary jurisdiction as at present (paragraph (1)).

It also repeals an obsolete provision requiring a licensing court to refuse an application for a grant or provisional grant of a bookmaking office licence if the premises have a net annual value of less than £1905 in the City of Belfast and £1520 elsewhere (paragraph (2)).
