Motion text

That this House notes that 27 October 2020 will see the release of Stand By Me, a recording to raise funds for Help Musicians the 99 year old charity which has continued to provide vital support to thousands of music creators during the covid-19 pandemic; further notes that the record has been co-ordinated by Whispering Bob Harris OBE former host of the famous Old Grey Whistle Test, who is celebrating his 50 years in broadcasting this year, is one of the UK's most popular and knowledgeable broadcasting icons, and who is a genuine national treasure; further believes it is absolutely fitting that he is at the forefront of a new release of this iconic song and that a huge array of artists have joined forces to create Whispering Bob’s All Stars to perform the song remotely; encourages the public to support the release and calls on the Government to do so also by providing greater financial support to musicians who cannot perform to a live audience as a result of the Government's covid-19 restrictions.
