Music and Dancing Control Amendment Bill Passed in Parliament

15 December 2022

The Music and Dancing (Control) Amendment Bill, 2022 was passed during the latest meeting of Parliament, which began on 7 December.

Presented by the Minister for Financial Services and Commerce, the Hon. André Ebanks, the Bill is intended to equalise economic opportunities for owners of stand-alone bars and sea-going vessels on Sundays.

 

Once the Bill is gazetted and comes into force, licensed stand-alone retail bars and sea-going vessels will be able to play music of a low, background nature for their patrons, on Sundays during the prescribed operating hours. This is not limited to pre-recorded music, which was a prior restriction under previous legislation.
