Adult Entertainment Working Group, Report and Recommendations
Scottish Ministers’ Adult Entertainment Working Group, April 2006
On 24 March 2005, Scottish Ministers set up a Working Group on Adult Entertainment to review the scope and impact of adult entertainment activity and make recommendations to Ministers on the way forward. This followed concerns expressed about the lack of controls on adult entertainment activity.
The Working Group was part of a two-stage approach to considering controls on these activities. The first stage is included in the Licensing (Scotland) Bill, which was introduced on 28 February 2005, and contains powers which will be used to prescribe measures for regulating adult entertainment on premises licensed to sell alcohol.
For the second stage, the Working Group was set up to investigate all forms of adult entertainment, irrespective of where the activity takes place.
