A question to the Minister representing the Minister for Arts, Energy, Resources and Utilities:

  1. With the net closure of over 176 venues since the introduction of the lockout laws, many of which provided live music, what is the government doing to support live music in NSW?
  2. What is the Minister’s response to criticism that the state government had completed just five of 25 recommendations from its night time economy taskforce?
  3. The Government’s contemporary music plan and the night time economy master plan are both overdue. Why?
