The Licensing Committee resolved to review the fees prior to April 2008, after receiving a report detailing the income and expenditure budgets for this work, so that the fees could be amended, if necessary, to ensure full cost recovery only, and accepted that, in the event that income was identified as being excessive at an early stage, then a report would be presented at the earliest opportunity to address this issue.
