Subject: RE: Action For Music. PELs
I take your point and I agree. Camdens' proposal and recognition of a distiction between the risks for amplified and non- amplified music making (one that even my council have made, is under the current PEL system.

There is no official suggestion that this distinction even exists, and none that this should form any part of the new legislation.

This officer has been pushed to indroduce the limited PEL locally and I suspect that there are many other more pressing concerns (as demonstrated above) for them to take this distiction to the committee that is forming the new Bill.

We can certainly hold Camden up to the authority which is trying to make this distinction (now) but also as an influential player and a lobby who wish to increase and regain control over fee levels, under the new legislation. Which of the two do you think they will pursue with most vigour?

The details of their proposed limited PEL can be found here.
