The exact impact will be determined by the outcome of consultations between Phonographic Performance Limited (PPL) and organisations concerned on licence fee levels. As part of this process it is essential that PPL work with the third sector to agree reasonable and appropriate tariffs.

A mutually agreed solution is vital if the needs of both PPL members and the third sector are to be met. I remain confident that this will be possible.
