Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
Roger, am I right in thinking that playing recorded music would also be an illegal unlicensed activity if the entertainments provision was not applied for ? If that is so, then most licensees would need to apply.

I think you are right, they would need to, but it still remains optional for licensees to apply or not along with their compulsory Premises Licence and Personal Licence.

There is the exemption for the playing of recorded music that is 'incidental'. However, the use of this argument looks set to keep Richard and his fellow legal friends in employment for many years to come.

I heard this morning that as part of the consultation process, I have been invited to a meeting of my Council's Licensing Committee on 23 November 2004. There I will hear the licensing manager's appraisal of my written comments placed before the Committee, for consideration. I won't know what her appraisal of my comments are but I am also invited to address the Committee and have all of 3 minutes to do so.............

Any ammendments to the draft Licensing Policy will be incorporated in a final document to be presented to the Full Council for adoption on 16 December 2004.
