Subject: RE: Save UK Live Music - Hurry!

The post should read..

the theoretical possibility of control of noise by the use of the inposition in advance of limitations and conditions in additional entertainment licensing - in practice simply does not guarantee a peaceful night's sleep but does it guarantee that much live music, which would never cause any noise pollution, is needless lost and limited as a result of the attempt.

The introduction of an exemption for non-amplified live music would only make matters worse, as the assumption then be be made that all amplified live music, in all premises and under all circumstances could safely be treated as if it were simply noise pollution and the added value which live music presents, will be ignored.
