I have been asked to reply.
As part of the Government’s consultation process we commissioned a final impact assessment from independent consultants, Europe Economics. It was published on 12 November with the Government response and a summary was placed in the House Library. This assessment estimated the impact on broad groupings which would be affected. Voluntary groups may also be charities and it is not possible to separate them out further.
The exact impact will be determined by the outcome of consultations between Phonographic Performance Ltd. (PPL) and organisations concerned on licence fee levels. However, PPL has stated that its current equivalent commercial fees range between £54 and £108 per year and it envisages that most organisations will pay fees at the lower end of this range or even lower. They have also confirmed that they will not charge in a number of circumstances including music used as part of divine worship and family occasions such as weddings.
