The Shambles Affected by The Licensing Act 2003 (439* d) RE: Affected by The Licensing Act 2003 16 Apr 07

As lots of venues now demand this (as well as risk assesment etc), anyone performing regularly will probably already have it.

I'm not sure that the average busker would (as most of their venues would not have required it).

But as with many of this schemes other conditions - much is duplication of other existing Health & Safety stuff and the rest is basic common sense.

The controls that remain are more questionable in intent. The important aspect is that they are all additional restrictions and requirements to the conditions of the issued Premises Licence and limited in the legislation governing this.

The point being that the Act's whole concept falls down when those applying for Premises Licence entertainment are less interested in providing Regulated Entertainment than they are in finding ways to place futher restrictions on it.

Those restrictions already provided by the legislation are bad enough without councils (and other organisations) finding wonderful ways of imposing more by becoming in effect the licensee instead of just the licensing authority.
