Subject: RE: Sign a E Petition to 10 Downing St PELs
The following from Graham Dixon


First of all thanks again to everyone who has supported the 'Licensing of Live Music' petition.

As you all know it was originally intended to deliver the petition at the end of March - but due to the war I felt that it would not get the publicity and exposure that it deserves.

So the delivery date has now been set to coincide with the bills next
reading in parliament.

I will be delivering the petition to Downing Street on Monday 16th June at 12:30 PM. So if you haven't yet signed - now is your chance to do so.

I would particularly like to thank Hamish Birchall from the Musicians Union for all his hard work in arranging the delivery and also Roger Gall for continuall keeping the issue in focus.

On a lighter note I would like to apologise to all the folks from
"Scunthorpe" and all the people named "Dick" "Dickson" & "Dickinson" who got blown out when trying to sign the petiton. The American profanity checker may thik that you are obscene but we love you ;-).

Thanks again.

Special thanks from me to Graham for doing a great job and to everyone out there who circulated, signed or did anything to enable the petition to work and make a difference.
