Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
Have done further work on Commons amendments. I note that Suddam Hussain of the music world, Kim Howells is on the Commons Scrutiny Committee and so far his contribution has been to suggest deletion of the three clauses from the Lords that gave hope, that is the small premises excemption, the acoustic music exemption and the music associated with another event exemption. Oh and martial arts has been added to the need a licence list. And playing of live music largely becomes performance of live music. and at another live music is removed but later added together with dance as needing a licence.

I hope Howells is forever remembered as the man who tried to kill off the culture of live music from the Department of Culture AND HE FAILS!
