Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.Yes he could be. The Council have to be satisfied that he does not pose a risk to members of the public.Having a caution for assault shows that he has demonstrated violence to others.So yes he can be refused on that basis.Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?Alex

Indeed, but its still assault. Provocation is not a defence.But to answer your question can it be refused - yes it can.
Expert:  Ash replied 1 year ago.
If its refused he can of course appeal.Can I clarify anything else for you?Alex
