Subject: RE: BS: PELs in Scotland
Is it true to say that the problem, in the case of the Highland Games you refer to is not limited to live music making? Is it the cost?

These events and Folk music festivals, not taking place on liquor licensed premises would of course need to be covered by an entertainment licence. Which should not really be too much of a problem, if the local authorities are sensible and help the organisers to ensure the public interest.

Is there any evidence that local authorities in Scotland are acting in the same manner that has so discredited local authorities in England and Wales?
