Fund the Arts and Entertainment industry instead of giving MPs another pay rise.
Give much needed extra funding to the UK Live Music and Entertainment Industry to help save grass root venues, theatres, music halls and cinemas from having to permanently shut down.
“Art is used to decorate your surroundings, music is used to decorate your soul.”
Like many, the recent news of MP’s getting a pay rise has hit hard, especially when many venues, theatres, and other places where live music and entertainment can be held, are having to close their doors for the foreseeable future. Without music, people feel lost or alone, and for many people it is used as an escape from daily life. Please help save the Music and Entertainment Industry, imagine life without music!

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:
The UK Government and Parliament aren't responsible for setting MPs' pay. The Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority (IPSA) is responsible for deciding on MPs' expenses and pay. IPSA is independent of both Parliament and Government.
