Jo Stevens comments on Cineworld job cuts

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Shadow Culture Secretary, commenting on Cineworld job cuts, said:

“This is devastating news for Cineworld workers and cinema goers, and will have a knock on impact on towns and city centres.

“The cinema industry was viable before the crisis and will be afterwards, when the film industry recovers. The failure of Ministers to recognise the value of shut-down businesses, which now includes many cinemas, means they are consigning thousands of workers to the scrap heap.”
