GUEST,The Shambles Live Music Bill - please help (45) RE: Live Music Bill - please help 27 Jan 12

The following from Hamish Birchall

What better day than Mozart's birthday for the conclusion of Parliamentary debate on the Live Music Bill.

The two minor amendments agreed in Commons Committee were ratified in
the House of Lords. We now await dates for Royal Assent and implementation.

Speaking to the amendments, Lord Clement-Jones offered his own 'Brit
Awards' to those organisations and individuals who had helped him make
the Bill a success. Lord Colwyn added his thanks and congratulations.
Both expressed the hope that the Bill would be enacted in time for the
Queen's Jubilee and Olympics.

Lord Clement-Jones added: 'At that time there will be suitable
celebrations and performances, I hope, in pubs and clubs up and down the

Baroness Rawlings responded: 'My Lords, on behalf of the Government, I
would like to add my thanks and congratulations to my noble friend Lord
Clement-Jones on his persistence and for having successfully steered
through this very worthwhile Bill. Regarding the Olympics and Her
Majesty the Queen's Jubilee, it would seem appropriate. I will, of
course, take the wishes of my noble friend Lord Clement-Jones back to
the DCMS.'
