That this House expresses concern at the impact of the Licensing Act 2003 on small-scale live music after the abolition of the `two in a bar' rule; regrets the Government's handling of the implementation of the legislation and the additional costs created for local authorities and applicants; notes the petition signed by some 38,000 people on the Downing Street website on the burdens created by the Act on music and dance across the UK; and calls on the Government to acknowledge the errors in the legislation and take steps to ensure that the future of small-scale live music is not put at risk.
