This from Howard Jones

There is a letter in today's "Times" from Dr Howells, responding to earlier letters from myself and others. He trots out the usual reponse that "impromptu" music making will not be affected, and puts forward a superficially reasonable case that local residents have a right to make their views known. This is of course undermined by the exemption for recorded music and TV, and fails to address why live music should not neverthelss be permitted unless it is shown to be causing problems with noise or disturbance.

Regards,

Howard Jones
