Scottish Affairs Committee
Report published on 18 January 2016.
The Scottish Affairs Committee has called on the UK and Scottish governments to work together to better understand and support creative industries in Scotland, or risk losing out on a multi-billion dollar industry. The report identifies a critical need for government to recognise the creative industries as important economic contributors in their own right and develop policies designed specifically to support them.
Evidence given by Jo Dipple, Chief Executive, UK Music, Brian Coane, Chair, IPA Scotland, and Amanda Nevill, Chief Executive Officer, British Film Institute; Ed Vaizey MP, Minister for Culture and the Digital Economy and Baroness Neville-Rolfe DBE CMG, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State and Minister for Intellectual Property, Department for Culture, Media and Sport and Business, Innovation and Skills (at 4.00pm).
Scottish Affairs Committee urge Government to work with Scottish Government to support creative industries
