Jo Stevens responds to job figures in DCMS Sectors

Jo Stevens MP, Labour’s Shadow Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Secretary, responding to new figures that show jobs in the DCMS Sectors represent 15.7% of the total UK workforce, said:

“These figures prove how vital our growing Digital, Culture, Media and Sport sectors are to overall UK employment, accounting for over 15% of the total UK workforce.

“We also know that many in these sectors fall outside of the support schemes announced by the Chancellor, which Labour has repeatedly raised with the Government.

“The Government must revisit the schemes currently on offer so that our previously growing and economically vital DCMS sector survives into the future.”
