Do you agree the ban on background music should be lifted?

Should operators be able to set appropriate levels of background music?

The ban on background music has a detrimental effect for many people in the hospitality sector with minimal benefit to tackling Covid 19

Utterly ridiculous. No need for it at all.

If retail can have background music on with no consequence or closure the hospitality sector must be allowed music.
