Birmingham’s bid presents an excellent opportunity to demonstrate the very best of...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: I think I may have upset you, Mr Speaker, by correcting you on Tuesday. The Government want to ensure the best deal for Britain on leaving the European Union and to provide as much certainty as we can. I have held a series of roundtable discussions within the cultural and creative sectors on the impacts and opportunities affecting them as a result of the UK’s exit from the EU. My...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: Of course, those touring musicians tour wholewide, not just in the 27 member states of the European Union, and they have great expertise and experience. I was with the London Symphony Orchestra in Seoul earlier this year, for example. We have seen that the sector is very successful, and that they can make a success of what they do throughout the world. I am, of course, mindful of the concerns...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: I am aware of those concerns, and the Department is looking carefully at them. Clearly, this is part of a negotiation, but we are looking carefully at the areas in which it is important that we continue membership.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: I am well aware of that, and of course it was the Conservatives who brought in the original funding streams. It is important to recognise that in European structural funds, there are sometimes restrictions that do not work in the United Kingdom as we would want. We are looking carefully at how we make sure that we get funding in the right places, in a way that works for Britain.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: My breath is taken away by the very suggestion. I do not like to correct my hon. Friend, but 2021 will be the City of Culture year. I will not be making any further comments on that, given the shortlist. The Commonwealth games will be in 2022, and he will have heard the Prime Minister’s comments at Prime Minister’s questions yesterday, when she gave a very firm backing to...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: As I have said, the creative industries are an enormous success story for the United Kingdom, but they take talent from the whole world, not just from 27 countries in the European Union. Of course I am very aware and mindful of the concerns about free movement, but we can learn a lot from the creative industries and the way in which they have been able to sell music, television, film and so...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: I am not quite sure how that relates to protecting the interests of cultural industries after the UK leaves the EU.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Cultural Industries (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: My right hon. Friend the Minister for Digital met the Information Commissioner yesterday specifically on that point. On the matter of data and leaving the European Union, the right hon. Gentleman will I hope welcome the position paper that we issued over the summer about our position on data and will also, I am sure, work constructively with the Government to ensure that the Data Protection...

Karen Bradley: I have regular discussions with the Secretary of State for Exiting the European Union on a range of issues affecting Department sectors in the context of leaving the EU.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: EU Withdrawal Negotiations (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: As I said earlier, I visited the Edinburgh festival—as did the Arts Minister, the Under-Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport, my hon. Friend the Member for Salisbury (John Glen)—this summer and I had a fantastic time. I was not aware of any issues with the UKVI blocking performers, but perhaps the hon. Lady can write to me on the specifics. She is talking...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: EU Withdrawal Negotiations (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: I think the hon. Gentleman said broadcasters based in London. I am concerned about broadcasters based across the whole of the United Kingdom. I am, of course, aware of the concerns about the country of origin principle and I am working hard to ensure we get the most favourable deal for UK broadcasters, so that they can continue to thrive in the world-class industry we have at the moment.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: EU Withdrawal Negotiations (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: As I said, I met the Immigration Minister earlier this week. The experiences of UK musicians touring throughout the world are very important in helping us to design an immigration system that not only works for the 27 member states, but the whole world.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Commemoration (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: The Government have delivered successful national commemorations marking the centenary of the outbreak of war on 4 August 2014, the battle of Gallipoli in 2015, and the battles of Jutland and the Somme in 2016. In July this year, we commemorated the centenary of Passchendaele, the third battle of Ypres, and I was fortunate to be able to attend. It was a moving occasion and my thanks go to...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Commemoration (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: It is fantastic to see so many communities around the country commemorating world war one and having armed forces days for the first time. I pay tribute to Thornbury for that. I will, of course, look at my tours and see what I can do to accommodate it.

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: First World War Commemoration (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: The tour of the poppies around the country is one of the most wonderful things. They were in Hull for its City of Culture and next year they will be in Stoke-on-Trent, which I was very pleased to note as it is very important for the ceramic poppies to appear in the home of the Potteries. I agree with the hon. Gentleman that this is one of the most wonderful installations, which can be seen by...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: As has previously been referred to, since the last oral questions, my Department has changed its name—the “D” in DCMS now stands for “Digital” in recognition of our responsibility for a massive and growing industry. We have also through the course of our questions mentioned many of the great successes of the summer: the Edinburgh festival, and the great sporting...

Digital, Culture, Media and Sport: Topical Questions (14 Sep 2017)

Karen Bradley: I would not wish to say where might be a suitable location for Channel 4, but I have been clear that I do want Channel 4 to make more of a contribution to the nations and regions of the United Kingdom. I will be publishing the responses to my consultation on the contribution that Channel 4 can make to the nations and regions, and I am sure that the board of Channel 4 will have heard my hon....
