-------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks for the email and fax.

Once upon a time, before I became an MP, I served on a local authority licensing committee for eight years. SO I fairly well acquainted with the rules and regulations on this issue. I must admit that when I was on the committee, I thought that some of the ideas on licensing were completely daft.

I am more than happy to follow this up for you. The last thing we want to do is destroy live music in pubs because of exorbitant licensing fees.

Will be in touch again when I get some answers.

As regards Tuesdays, I am usually ensconced in the open prison (Parliament)on weekday evenings. The whips couldn't possibly cope with MPs living real lives, now could they?

Cheers,

Shona"

Sounds like she's one of the good guys.
