The Committee questions representatives for music labels and musicians on whether the “reset of streaming” urged in the Committee’s report is underway.

MPs are expected to ask about the future of remuneration for musicians, after the Committee found that artists were poorly compensated for the revenue brought in from music streaming.

The session may also cover the Competition and Markets Authority’s (CMA) investigation into the music industry. The Government referred major music groups to the CMA in response to the Committee’s concerns that these groups were too dominant and were distorting the industry.
