ET demonstate against the bill (21) RE: demonstate against the bill 15 Aug 03

Interesting stuff this but don't rely on the "incidental bit" since making space for music might be regarded as "provision of entertainment facilities".

Having just lost a good (unlicensed) venue to a new landlord who wants to turn the pub into an extension of the funeral palour business have now found another with a private room upstairs - all go in as a "club" and sign in but this will be lost to the new legislation.

Like many I find it hard to consider these new provisions without feeling very angry - point is do we have a single loud voice - I know the petition was ineffective in the end but 120,000 signatures are all voters and new labour are in some trouble! Is it worth a new protest e-petition reminding Downing Street how much Labour has lost through this bureacracy?

Who would keep a data base of the effect of this act on pubs?

Landlords are now expressing concern about a 22% hike in Sky subscriptions - this is free under the act but costs about 400 per month per pub to put on. Contrast this with the facilities laid on for "sessions" - usually sweet FA and Guiness Sales up by 100%.
