Music Licences
In light of the shocking news that Lothian hospitals are now paying £170,000 per year for music licences, I was wondering what Edinburgh Leisure are paying for the same thing, as you play music in all your establishments. Though in my local centre, Warrender, I note that the free Spotify is played, which means that it's not paid for.
