Local MP Lynne Featherstone last night extracted a promise from the Government that last minute applications for lap dancing clubs will not escape new licensing laws.

The assurance given on the floor of the House of Commons means that last minute applications, such as the one recently suspended in Crouch End, cannot avoid the new licensing requirements by rushing applications through before the change in law.

:"The Crouch End community was left bruised and powerless because of the lack of proper regulation from the Government meaning lap-dancing clubs only need the same licence as a caf�. This is plainly ridiculous and I support the new powers brought under this new law,'' she said.

"Last minute applications like the one in Crouch End cannot escape the new stronger system. I hope this this will come as a relief to local campaigners."
