Subject: RE: BS: Queen's speech, and licensing reforms
Word is filtering through of a press launch of the Bill by Tessa Jowell to be held in London this Friday.

In of all places, The Red Lion in Whitehall!!!!

The very same place where the Musician's Union have help two protests against the Bill's entertainment reform proposals.

An invitation was given for Dr Howells to attend the last one, with Billy Bragg singing with MPs, but was declined as it was too left wing.

It does not look as if the invitation is to be returned. The MU do not appear to have received an invite...........Maybe they need some music?
