Thread Name: Killed by the PEL system
Subject: RE: Killed by the PEL system
Last year a session (primarily for English music) which had been running for a couple of years in the Welsh Harp in Waltham Abbey had to close because the pub didn't have a PEL, and the authorities had leaned on them. (It is suspected that this may have happened because another publican in the town made a complaint, fearing the session might result in the pub taking some of his custom.)
