GUEST,The Shambles Licensing consultation announced! (1356* d) RE: Licensing consultation announced! 23 Jan 12

The fact is that gatherings of people can cause problems - whatever the purpose for which they have gathered.

Even if no live music were adversly affected by the Licensing Act 2003, the MU should still support their members by openly opposing the Act's requirements for live music.

The MU, in refusing to publicly oppose the main issue for their members which is contained in Licensing Act 2003 - are supporting the 'spurious' basic premise on which the requirement for the Act's additional entertainment licensing permission is based.

This premise is that, in advance of a note of music being sounded, live music and musicians will automatically present concerns which existing planning, environmental, health, safety and other legislation is inadequate to deal with and which only additional entertainment licensing permission is adequate to deal with.

If the MU's high-ups do support this basic premise, perhaps they (the LGA and Govt) can inform us, what these concerns are and why these concerns only arise over live music and musicians?

even with the the Live Music Bill - all live music will require additional entertainment licensing to take place later than 11pm.
