HC Deb 18 November 1963 vol 684 cc39-40W
Sir S. McAdden

asked the Attorney-General whether he is aware that the cost and complicated procedures involved make it impracticable for any individual music user to seek the protection of the Performing Right Tribunal without expensive legal aid; and whether he will seek to amend the Performing Right Tribunal rules to facilitate its use by music users of modest means.

The Attorney-General

The procedure of this Tribunal is designed to be as simple as the nature of the proceedings will allow and I do not think it places any undue burden on applicants of modest means. If, however, my hon. Friend has any suggestions as to the way in which the procedure can be improved I shall be glad to consider them.
