I have listened with care to the you and yours broadcast. Clearly many organisations are having trouble with the paperwork and fees. James Parnell says "we wil be happy to be judged on this legislation in a years time".   Judged how? By closed premises, the end of traditional music in pubs?

I have heard the Ministerial line so many times about flexibility and encouragement of live music. It is a long way from the reality of the Act.

I do think however that a fundamental part of humanity is the creative urge and somehow or other making music (and drama and comedy) etc will rise above New Labour controls.
