Mick Hucknall of Simply Red addressed the first briefing of the All-Party Music Group at the Houses of Paliament last night. The group is pressing the Government to reform public entertainment licensing to make it easier for pub, bar and restaurant owners to employ live musicians. "A healthy music industry depends upon there being, not hundreds, or thousands but tens of thousands of active, gigging musicians," he told the meeting.
