Thread Name: BS: PELs in Scotland
Subject: PELs in Scotland
While the PEl situation in England and Wales is serious, the impression seems to be that the issue does not exist in Scotland. It may not as far as pubs are concerned but it appears that the small town Highland Games are under threat from PELs. It appears that these small Games now require a PEL and must satisfy council safety , fire first aid regulations etc. This is reported to be be killing of several smaller games and I have no doubt that the principle will spread to smaller folk festivals too.
