Thanks, but this speech has already been stamped. You can go to the next unstamped speech on this day, or get a new unstamped speech at random.

Simon Hughes

As we celebrate the BAFTAs and the Oscars, I am sure that the Minister will have noticed that there are very few black and minority ethnic faces in front of the screen, and the work force behind the screen are similarly unrepresentative. Will he use his influence to ensure that when the British Film Institute, which is based on the south bank in my part of the world, takes over responsibilities, it understands the importance of diversity for the whole of the work force, and will he work with me to ensure that that is achieved?

— from debate entitled “Diversity (Film Sector)

The three speeches/headings immediately before

  1. 1 earlier: Edward Vaizey

    The British Film Institute has a long and proud track record of commitment to diversity, both in the workplace and in its cultural programme, including such pioneering work as the London lesbian and gay film festival, the breadth of programming in the BFI London film festival and at BFI Southbank and in its DVD catalogue. It remains committed to ensuring access for all to everything that it does and to reflecting the full diversity of experience in its work.

  2. 2 earlier: Simon Hughes

    If he will require the British Film Institute to continue the UK Film Council’s work on promoting diversity in the film sector.

  3. 3 earlier: Diversity (Film Sector)

Some videos will be miles out – if you can't find the right point, don't worry, just try another speech!

  • Sign in if you want to get on the Top Timestampers league table!
  • If the video suddenly jumps a couple of hours, or otherwise appears broken, let us know.
  • If the speech you're looking for is beyond the end of the video, move on to the next video chunk.
  • If you're right at the start of a day, it's quite possible the start of the video will be the end of the previous programme on BBC Parliament, skip ahead some minutes to check :)
  • Hansard is not a verbatim transcript, so spoken words might differ slightly from the printed version. And a small note – if the speech you are looking out for is an oral question (questions asked in the first hour or so of Monday–Thursdays in the Commons), then all the MP will actually say is their question number, e.g. “Number Two”.
  • The skip buttons move in 30 second increments (you can go back before the start point), and you can access a slider by hovering over the video.
