We are aware that there are calls for a Government backed insurance scheme for live events. I am grateful for the evidence provided and I know DCMS and HMT colleagues are closely monitoring the situation together with the sector.

We are continuing to meet with live events stakeholders to provide support and guidance for venues to re-open and stage live events.
