Response

Your request has been handled under the Freedom of Information (FOI) Act 2000. The FOI Act gives you the right to know whether we hold the information that you want and to have it communicated to you, subject to any exemptions that may apply.

I can confirm that The National Archives holds information relevant to your request, though it should be noted that these lists may not be comprehensive. This is due to records from earlier licenses being difficult to interpret and not necessarily recorded in the way we would do so now. Additionally, given the labour intensive nature of this request, human error also needs to be taken into account.

We are pleased to be able to provide this information to you via the link below:
