Save Music statement on the political declaration

The political declaration, announced on Thursday 22 November 2018, fails to explicitly protect visa-free travel for working musicians. It says visa-free travel is only an aim, and it is not clear what sort of travel it would protect.

The Government also needs to provide clarity around the settlement on culture and education, which this declaration has failed to provide. We re-iterate our call for the Government to clarify its intentions around the Cooperative Accord on Culture and Education as soon as possible.
