Subject: RE: Action For Music. PELs
You misunderstand me, Roger - I specifically stated "at little or no extra cost" I'm not saying we should accept Camden's proposals "as is", but that the principle of an exemption for small, unamplified events should be built into the legislation - a more sensible version of the "2-in-a bar" exemption to take account of the current situation.
If one of the hardline councils is conceding the principle, that is an opening we can start driving wedges in. We ought to be able to come up with a better defintion of what to exempt and how, and use Camden as an example of an authority that recognises not all music can be tarred with the same brush.
