Subject: RE: Action For Music. PELs
A word of warning, under current legislation, Camden's proposed fee for their limited licence, is still considerably more tham what many councils charge for the full PEL.
I would still question what concern to safety or the public's interest is being made by such an event, that is not presented by TV sports in pubs, or other activities that are not considered licensable.
But they are at least recognising (or being forced to recognise)the principle that all music making is not a noise concern. One that the Government have still not accepted.
Snuffy it says a lot about how low our expectations have become when 99% of bad news is overlooked in order to try and find some crumbs of comfort. *Smiles* It was for that reason I did think about not putting that bit in.
The reform is being sold as cheaper, when an (this officer) part of an important lobby which sits on the committee wording the Bill, is trying to increase these charges and return the level of charge back to the local authority.
A committee that EFDSS has been refused a place or a say on.
