In a similar vein, the Musicians' Union Folk, Roots and Tradtitional Music section ( has provided a form on their website to report any PEL incidents as they relate to the performance of live music in licenced premises under the new law.

The intent is to collate any information information submitted and present it to the music forum and/or the governement's promised consultation on the operation of the new law - after it has been operation for 18 months. If the new law does have a negative effect on the performance of live music then a body of verifiable incidents will have more weight than uncoroborated, anecdotal accounts.

You can find the form on the web at;
