The Culture, Media and Sport Committee has launched a new inquiry into support for the creative economy.
The Committee is inviting written submissions and requesting views on a number of issues focusing on the film, music, television, design and games sectors.
A number of concerns are addressed, including the impact of the failure to as yet implement the Digital Economy Act, and how best to develop the legacy from the Olympics and Paralympics in the display of UK creative talent.
The Committee also welcomes suggestions for the ways in which Government policy should address barriers to growth in the creative industries—such as difficulties in accessing private finance, and the extent to which taxation supports the growth of the creative economy, including whether it would be desirable to extend the tax reliefs targeted at certain sectors in the 2012 Budget.
Other points include the role of further and higher education in finding ways to establish a strong skills base to support the creative economy and the work of the Creative Industries Council and other public bodies responsible for supporting the sector.
