Motion text

That this House celebrates the cultural value of the arts and entertainment sector; notes that the creative industries are a large employer and are currently growing at more than twice the rate of the rest of the economy, contributing 11.4 billion to the UK's balance of trade; and therefore reaffirms a commitment to public investment in the arts because the sector generates more for the economy than the amount invested, and provides a solid basis for the wider creative industries.
