Motion text

That this House notes that Tiga, the trade body representing independent UK video games developers, has come out in support of targeted tax relief for the games industry; encourages tax relief for small and medium-sized enterprises for its role in generating and safeguarding jobs, especially in these current difficult times; remains concerned that regulation of the video games industry is lacking in comparison to other industries; is anxious that the Pan European Game Information (PEGI) classification of video games is taken as seriously as the British Board of Film Classification by both retailers and shoppers; wishes the public was more aware of the risks to children and young adults; and calls on the Government to place more scrutiny on the PEGI classification system.
