Baroness Benjamin – 2015 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Culture, Media and Sport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Baroness Benjamin on 2015-12-03.

To ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the contribution of children’s media from the UK to promoting British culture and principles in the UK and abroad.

Baroness Neville-Rolfe

The Government recognises the important contribution children’s television makes to promoting British culture and the UK economy. In April, the Government introduced a new tax relief for children’s ‘live action’ television productions to attract inward investment and support our domestic market. We have noted the issues identified by Ofcom and will continue to monitor the sector and consider whether further measures are needed.
