P-05-1013 Provide financial support for self-employed individuals within the Welsh live music industry



This petition was submitted by Peter Phillips having collected a total of 189 signatures.


Text of Petition:                     

The Welsh Government have given no indication as to when live music will be allowed to commence post lockdown. Accordingly, anybody working in the live music industry in Wales is unable to earn a living. The national Self-Employment Income Scheme ends on 17 August. After that date, should the Welsh Government continue to prohibit live music, they should be compelled to provide direct financial support to self-employed individuals in Wales who make their living in that industry.
