Kevin Brennan MP comments on the Creative Industries Sector Deal

Kevin Brennan MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for the Arts, commenting on the Creative Industries Sector Deal, said:

“The so-called Creative Industries Early Sector Deal is months late and hasn’t lived up to the hype.

“There is an abject lack of funding or ambition for creative education and skills from this Government. Labour will be holding its own series of roundtables with creative industry sectors and will be bringing forward an alternative sector deal later this year.

“The Government promised a blockbuster for the Creative Industries but this disappointing suite of re-announcements and recycled money is destined to go straight to DVD.”
