The number of court applications for late drinking licences has dropped by almost 20 per cent since the fee was trebled in 2008.

The Minister for Justice, Alan Shatter, told Dublin North East Labour TD Seán Kenny in the Dáil last week that there had been 78,711 applications for special exemption orders in 2008, 64,011 in 2009 and 64,878 in 2010.

The Courts Service anticipated that the figure would be lower again for 2011.
