Subject: Revamped live music bill launched today



A revamped Live Music Bill by Lib Dem peer Lord Clement-Jones will get a first reading this afternoon in the House of Lords.

Among other things, the new Bill proposes:

An entertainment licence exemption for performances of live music in bars between 8am and midnight to audiences of up to 200, rather than in premises of up to 200 capacity - but subject to review if there are problems;

A similar exemption in places not already licensed under the Act, but which qualify as a workplace under health and safety legislation, including cafes, schools and hospitals;

An exemption for solely unamplified live music between 8am and midnight, without restriction on the number of performers, subject to review in places already licensed under the Act, such as bars and pubs.

The removal of the requirement to licence entertainment facilities.

Full details, including copies of the Bill, should be available tomorrow on the UK Parliament website: www.parliament.uk

ENDS

This do-over of the horribly ill-conceived bill would be an extremely generous step in the right direction. As said above, one wonders if it will actually go anywhere. I certainly hope so.

No doubt the Local Government Association will muster their forces and start a whispering campaign among friendly MPs to fight this bill.

After all, it is a nice little earner and, to parody a certain M. Flanders; it makes more work for the jobsworthys to do.

I'd love it if it did not extend to amplified music!

The man who's trying to fix a LOUD Amp is objecting to Amplified music ? Nowt wrong with Amplification , unless its so loud you can hear it in the pub down the road

I wonder if this is an opportunity for my friend Humphrey Smith (of Sam Smiths fame) to have a relook at his policies? Perhaps time to re-engage him in dialogue...

PRS is still an issue I guess

It would be nice to play in Farlington again because it was a lovely place to play

You'd think the authorities would have better things to do than go around the country looking for un-licensed folk venues. I mean,they can't even find one man in a drain using a hundred armed men ,helicopters,and armoured personnel carriers,so finding Marlow Bottom Acoustic in a remote country pub with no Live Music license is obviously going to be beyond them --unless someone "grasses", I suppose .

Trouble is that the pub can't run and hide.
All it needs is a little publicity being read by the wrong person.

I am sure that various control freaks in local government will find objections.
