Michael calls on the Government to act now on helping small music venues
Posted by Fé5pc on December 08, 2015
Following growing pressure from Labour and the music industry, the Government has promised to look again at the problems facing grassroots music venues and implementing the “Agent of Change” principle.
After Labour tabled amendments to the Planning and Housing Bill, the Government finally said it would now engage with small music venues and the music industry. Michael has written to John Whittingdale, the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, to call on the Government to do this as a matter of urgency. And if the Government fails to act soon, Labour will be ready to bring amendments back to the House of Commons at a later stage of the Planning and Housing Bill.
