Subject: RE: PELs Government v MU & lawyers
Here's another extract from the DCMS response:

Their use for entertainment often gives rise to particular issues, for example:

Temporary cabling and staging
Blocking of fire exits
Unusual distribution of people in the premises
Certain aspects of crowd behaviour
Unusual noise disturbance
It is to address these and similar issues that public entertainment has been and continues to be a licensable activity.

Let's pause and think about this. Suppose I intend to hold a session every Friday night and apply for a licence. I am inspected, the licence is granted, all is well.

Now how exactly does the piece of paper on the wall ensure I lay the cables properly every week?
