英国 ‘rejected offer’ of visa-free tours 通过 音乐家 in 欧盟

英国拒绝了由英国提供的免签证旅行的提议 音乐家 归咎于欧盟国家 布鲁塞尔 业界称其为需要许可证的灾难性打击。

一项“标准”建议拒绝了表演者90天的巨额成本和官僚作风, 独立 has been reported –因为政府坚持 否认访问该国的欧盟艺术家.

“It is usually in our agreements with third countries, that [work] visas are not required for 音乐家. We tried to include it, but the 英国 said no,” an 欧盟 source close to the negotiations said.

The revelation comes after the shock threat of visas sparked protests that future tours will have to be abandoned, at a time when 音乐家 are already reeling from the impact of 新冠肺炎. It sparked calls for ministers to reveal exactly what took place in the negotiations, after they insisted 布鲁塞尔 was responsible for the damaging new red tape.

内阁办公厅部长迈克尔·戈夫(Michael Gove)周六警告称,随着规则改变带来的更多后果,各种企业都应为“重大边界破坏”做好准备。 

美国音乐家协会(ISM)的负责人说,对于音乐提议遭到拒绝的证据,她感到“震惊”。 劳动 球迷表示“不会原谅”政府。
