ET Minister say's jamming OK in UK (305* d) RE: Minister say's jamming OK in UK 21 Jul 05


This debate is interesting but unfortunate. What Shambles says is accurate. This is legislation and the Government will not change its mind whatever-Hazel Blearse from the Home Office even defendent 24 hour opening against 1 m plus crimes of violence so nothing will change for music.

And it is generally the premise owner that carrys the can, not the musician.

I have copied the radio broadcast of Vine and James Parenell revealing the Minister does not understand his own legislation, to local press and local commercial radio broadcasters, and to my MP but I don't anticipate changes, other than vague ministerial statements that the legislation will be kept under review.

I fear its a case of "go with the flow" or else!   Make sure your local licensee has applied for the entertainment variation.

I have also raise other, non pub issues, like village fetes that have jazz bands to entertain. They will need a licence, and wont bother. They could have fire eaters breathing flames over the crowd without a licence but have a JAzz Quartet and a licence is needed. Things like Art Galleries which have open evenings with a string quartet to entertain need a licence. (can you imagine the trouble that playing a Bach Violin Solo might bring!)

Happy Days
