Tom Watson MP responds to Channel 4’s location announcement

Tom Watson MP, Labour’s Shadow Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, commenting on Channel 4’s location announcement, said:

“Congratulations to Leeds, Bristol and Glasgow for their excellent bids and commiserations to other cities that just missed out.

“It’s critically important that the UK’s media landscape is diverse and reflects the whole of the UK not just part of it.

“Channel 4’s announcement today, and commitment to using more of its commissioning budget in the nations and regions, will go a long way to achieving that.”
