This act was intended to regulate the private security industry by issuing licences for persons to hold jobs in this sector.  The excessive charges for licences tend to indicate that it is more about raising revenue, bearing in mind that licences last only 3 years, and that a licence costs £245 for first licence, and £122.50 for any other licence neded.

If regulation is needed, then OK, but not  for a prohibitively high charge.

Why is this idea important?

Amendment of this act, by substitution of a reasonable charge, would achieve regulation, and show that Government are not just out to raise revenue under the pretence that they are regulating the industry.
