Rishi Sunak – 2020 Comments on Funding for Independent Cinemas

The comments made by Rishi Sunak, the Chancellor of the Exchequer, on 20 December 2020.

Our Restart Scheme has already helped to get nearly 100 film and TV productions back up and running as part of our Plan for Jobs, and it’s right that we extend this to support even more jobs in the UK’s creative industries, including for the over 70s.
