A Private Members Bill which aims to make it easier for pubs to host live music will now be debated in the House of Commons. The Live Music Bill, submitted by Liberal Democrat Peer Lord Clement-Jones, received its third reading in the House of Lords yesterday and will now pass to the Commons for debate. The government is currently proposing a live music licensing exemption for premises with a capacity under 100. But Clement-Jones’ Live Music Bill wants venues to be exempt from needing a live music licence if their capacity is under 200. It also wants a return of the two-in-a-bar rule.
