Rejected petition Priorities and review the current situation restricting Live Music Performances throughout Wales.
The current situation is causing many venues to close down. Many performing artists are not receiving the help promised from the Assembly.
To long is being taken in assisting the Arts which is on its knees and needs urgent assistance to venues and artists.
Im witnessing the death of live music before my own eyes its shameful that this is happening in a place renowned for music.
I have friends who have lost their homes due to very little assistance forthcoming why is the Fifty Million Pounds set aside to support this industry not being distributed why are you allowing venues to collapse never to return and finally why are you declining the artists a right to perform.
Please review the current rulings help the industry move forward and return to some form of normality.
Everyone is aware of the current situation but what is the point of prohibiting 100 people attending a controlled performance but allowing 200 people to board a plane.
