GUEST,Tom Bliss Form 696 - Anti music legislation (77* d) RE: Form 696 - Anti music legislation 08 Oct 10

Government response:

Thank you for the above petition.

Form 696 is a risk assessment form which the Metropolitan Police requests promoters and licensees of events to complete and submit 14 days in advance of an event in 21 London Boroughs. Non compliance with this may result in police opposition to event licenses being granted.

As you may be aware, the 696 form has been updated. The original form asked for details of ethnic groups likely to attend the performance, but that version was revised to omit those parameters in December 2008.

In September 2009, the Metropolitan Police announced that venues would no longer be asked for details of the music style. A requirement to provide the telephone number of the performing artist will also be dropped and an independent scrutiny panel will be set up to ensure that the form is not misused.
