The Legislation

20 Club licence–miscellaneous conditions

(1) The following requirements apply in relation to a registered club:
(a) the club must not hold a hotel licence or acquire any financial interest in a hotel,
(b) the manager of the licensed premises must not provide a cash advance on the premises, or permit a cash advance to be provided on the premises on behalf of the club otherwise than as a prize or bonus won as a direct or indirect consequence of participating in a form of gambling that may lawfully be conducted on the licensed premises.

(2) Subsection (1) (a) does not apply to or in respect of a hotelier’s licence or financial interest in a hotel that was granted to (or acquired by) a club before 2 April 2002. The prohibition on a registered club holding a hotelier’s licence or acquiring a financial interest in a hotel was previously contained in section 9A (1AA) of the Registered Clubs Act 1976 (as inserted by Schedule 3 [6] to the Gaming Machines Act 2001). The previous prohibition did not apply to licences or financial interests granted or acquired before the commencement of section 9A (1AA)–see clause 89 of Schedule 2 to the Registered Clubs Act 1976.
