    Equity Up-Front on EDM 1598!
    Equity has now shown a link on their home page alerting and urging members, to write to their MP asking them to sign EDM 1598…
    Mark Prisk MP has placed an early day motion before Parliament relating to the payment of upfront fees for actors and models. The motion (EDM 1598) reads:
    “That this House notes that thousands of young aspiring actors and models are being defrauded by unscrupulous agencies who charge unwarranted up-front fees; further notes that, according to The Stage magazine, the vast majority receive no work in return; recalls the promise made by the Government in May 2006 that it would stamp out this practice; is concerned to note that not a single prosecution has since been made; and calls on the Government to fulfil its promise to prosecute rogue agencies and to close the legal loophole which allows this fraudulent activity to continue in the entertainment industry.”
    Equity encourages all our members to contact their MPs and urge them to add their support to this motion. If you are not sure who is your MP please visit http://www.theyworkforyou.com
