The Committee considered an application for the suspension or revocation of a Personal Licence for Mr L M who had been convicted of a relevant offence.


The Sub-Committee Members and the licence holder had received the agenda papers prior to the meeting.


The Licensing Officer introduced the report and outlined the salient points


Mr M addressed the Committee and made representations and answered questions.


Mr M was then asked to leave the room whilst the sub-committee deliberated on the application and made their decision.


RESOLVED that having considered the application for the Suspension or Revocation of Personal Licence for Mr M and have decided to revoke his personal licence for the following reasons:-


The Committee have considered the details of the offence and regard it as a serious violent offence. The Committee have taken into account the oral representations made by Mr M. He says he cannot mitigate his actions and he holds his hands up to the offence. Mr M suggested he could not say that the same could happen again but he could not see a reason why it would happened again. He has asked for anger management and relationship counselling but has not be yet. Mr M said he used his personal licence to apply for temporary events. To date he has held three events one of which he used his personal licence. Mr M said he had lost his taxi badge.


The Committee felt Mr M lacked adequate moral judgement and control which calls into question his ability to promote the licensing objectives in particular crime and disorder. The concern would be that he may not be able to control his actions in a situation where the committee would expect a personal licence holder to do so. The Committee regards this as rending Mr M as not fit to have a personal licence.


The Committee feel they have no alternative but to revoke his personal licence.
