But some believe relaxing music licensing could cause disturbances.
Crawley MP Henry Smith, who attended the debate, said: "I believe licensing for live music venues of under 200 people between 8-11pm should continue so that the needs of local residents who may be affected can be taken into account as can safety and security concerns of concert-goers.
"It is important that elected councils should be allowed to act in the interests of local people."
It was a good job that Henry Smith MP, who claims to have attended the debate, did not vote. It was so quick, he must have missed it!
