star this property answer text <p>The Government recognises the significant contribution generated by music and the evening economy to the UK. We have reformed entertainment licensing and planning policy guidance, making it easier for well-established music and cultural venues to operate. Government has confirmed that it will work with all Mayoral Combined Authorities and Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) to develop Local Industrial Strategies, which are locally-led and agreed with Government. The national Industrial Strategy provides a policy framework against which Local Industrial Strategies will be assessed. Government recognises the value that creative industries bring to local places, and engages with LEPs in promoting the growth of these sectors through Local Industrial Strategies - for example by developing a Connected Growth Toolkit to support LEPs in designing local strategies.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>In the UK, the Phone-paid Services Authority (PSA) regulates Premium Rate Services (PRS), which include premium rate text services. Providers of PRS must comply with the PSA Code of Practice which is approved by Ofcom, which includes specific protections for vulnerable consumers.</p><p> </p><p>The PSA has the power to take robust enforcement action against companies that breach their Code. In serious cases, the PSA Code Adjudication Tribunal may impose sanctions which can include ordering refunds to be paid to affected consumers, prohibition of the provider from providing services and fines of up to £250,000 for each breach of the Code.</p><p> </p><p>The PSA has recently consulted on draft proposals to strengthen the regulation of phone-paid services offered on a subscription basis. The PSA considered risks to consumers as part of the consultation including the specific risk of harm to vulnerable consumers. The consultation closed in May and the PSA will publish its response later this year.</p>

star this property answer text <p>The Government takes the protection of consumers very seriously. It also supports the UK music industry and fair remuneration for artists. In the event that a company is unable to meet its contractual obligation when they fall into administration, consumers who paid for goods using their credit card are protected under section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act 1974 (CCA) and should contact their card issuing company. In some circumstances, debit card payments can be refunded through the Chargeback scheme and consumers should seek further information from their bank.</p><p>The Insolvency Agency, an executive agency of the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, acts as an impartial source of information for the public and HMG on insolvency and redundancy matters.</p><p> </p> more like this
