Written Answers — Northern Ireland Office: Schools: North Down (15 Jan 2018)

Karen Bradley: I would be happy to consider any formal invitations which may be forthcoming from any sectors of the community, including those which focus specifically on education. I understand that Northern Ireland Office Ministers have had a number of valuable and enjoyable visits to the honourable Lady’s constituency in the past and I hope to be in a position to do likewise at some point in the...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Channel 4 (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: We have been clear all along that this is a publicly owned broadcaster. Channel 4 must provide for and reflect the country as a whole. We are still in discussions with Channel 4 about how it should do this, including through relocating staff out of London, and we will set out next steps in due course.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Channel 4 (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: I thought it was going to be a bid for Wrexham, so I am interested to hear the right hon. Gentleman’s views on other locations. There are many estimates of the benefit, but Channel 4 relocating out of London would have a clear benefit to the country. It is a publicly owned broadcaster and as such we expect it to deliver public benefits above and beyond commercial benefits, and that...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Channel 4 (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: My right hon. Friend speaks with great experience and knowledge on this matter, and the House does well to listen to his wise words.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Channel 4 (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: This is one of the arguments that has been made about how Channel 4’s business model operates. We have seen what happened with the BBC’s move to Salford—although I accept that the BBC has a different business model. That creativity and clustering of talent has had benefit. One has only to look at the analysis of the amount of programming that is currently commissioned...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Online Ticket Sales (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: We are committed to cracking down on unacceptable behaviour in the ticketing market and improving fans’ chances of buying tickets at a reasonable price. We are strengthening the existing ticketing provisions in the Consumer Rights Act 2015, and we intend to introduce a new criminal offence of using automated software to buy more tickets than allowed. We also welcome the work of the...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Online Ticket Sales (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: I sympathise greatly with my hon. Friend’s constituents and their concerns. At Christmas in particular, when parents, friends and family are looking to buy tickets for events, it can be very frustrating. That is why we introduced the offence in the Digital Economy Act 2017 and are committed to introducing these changes as quickly as possible, hoping to bring in secondary legislation in...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Online Ticket Sales (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: I am slightly confused, Mr Speaker. We changed the law. We did something. We have acted on this and we will introduce the secondary legislation in the spring.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: I am delighted to be able to confirm to the House again that the Commonwealth Games Federation has this morning announced that the 2022 Commonwealth games have been awarded to Birmingham. Our commitments now come into effect, and I am sure that the games will demonstrate the very best of global Britain and Birmingham to the world. May I add my congratulations to all involved, particularly...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: I have to agree with my hon. Friend. I know that part of the world very well, as I am sure you can imagine, MrSpeaker, and I agree, particularly about the use of cycling to get people to see these incredible parts of our country, the scenery, the UNESCO world heritage sites, and others. However, I would point out that you do not have to go to Derbyshire to enjoy the Peak district; you can...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: My right hon. Friend again speaks with great knowledge and experience. He has very wise words for us—one very wise man in the Chamber at Christmas time is a start—and his points are well made. We want to ensure that content is protected and that those who provide and produce it are able to make the money that they should rightly make from it. We are working with the creative...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: My hon. Friend has been an absolute stalwart in campaigning for Dundee, both before the very disappointing announcement by the European Commission and since, and in finding a way of recognising the work that has been done. Dundee should be congratulated: it made a bid for city of culture in 2017, when Hull was given the award, and since then, the same team has worked together and really built...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: We have consulted on Leveson, and we will release the responses and our response to the consultation in due course. We are currently having conversations with all those involved to make sure we follow the proper process that is required before we can release the figures.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: I absolutely agree with the hon. Lady. The creative industries are a real UK success story. They are growing much faster than the rest of the economy, and they make up a significant proportion of our economic value and our power in the world. We have a brilliant film industry in the UK, and I urge all hon. Members, if they have not yet done so, to go and see “Paddington 2” and...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (21 Dec 2017)

Karen Bradley: I do not think there is anything that is not in there. The creative industries work with us, and these are sectoral analyses that set out the analysis we have made as Government, working with the industry. I am sorry to disappoint the hon. Lady at Christmastime if she feels that she is missing something, and I hope that when Christmas comes it will provide everything she is looking for.

This includes its interests in two major UK Media companies Sky PLC and Endemol/Shine. 21st Century Fox currently remains as the bidder for Sky PLC and Disney and 21st Century Fox confirmed in their joint announcement that they want the 21st Century Fox bid for Sky -...

Written Ministerial Statements — Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Post-Council Written Ministerial Statement for Telecoms, Transport and Energy Council (12 Dec 2017)
