Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
Probably not this Government....

The following from Terry Redmond.

This from Westminster Councils guide for licensees (the names seem so appropriate)

When will I have to do something to convert my licence?

The process will start on 7 February 2005.

You must submit an application to the Council within six months from 7 February, the first appointed day (FAD) of the transition period. As the Council will be operating a phased approach to applications, we will be contacting you over the coming months to let you know when you should submit your application.

The Government will announce the second appointed day (SAD) in due course, which we expect to be nine months later. On the SAD the new licensing regime will come into effect.

Let's hope it isn't a SAD day for the music scene we enjoy........
