Town of Culture Award (23 Jan 2019)

Tanmanjeet Singh Dhesi: ...a lot more than just David Brent and “The Office” to offer. Slough is a fantastic, diverse cultural melting pot and now it has become a major business, creative and cultural powerhouse, with Pinewood Studios right on our doorstep. A lot of people from Slough are working there, contributing to our collective national culture and increasing our collective national pride in our country....

Caledonian Pinewood Forest (31 Oct 2018)

Caledonian Pinewood Forest

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Screen Sector (23 Oct 2018)

Fiona Hyslop: I do not think that we are doing badly and I do not think that we are behind. I understand the point as it relates to the spend at Pinewood and some of the traditional studios around London, but compared with the amount of spend in other countries, the spend in Scotland is very competitive. We are very advanced when it comes to production and production spend. We should be talking our screen...

Backbench Business: Channel 4 Relocation — [Sir Graham Brady in the Chair] (10 May 2018)

Stephen Doughty: ...will come on to. We have 3,000 creative companies and facilities located in Cardiff, including those in television and film production. Some are very large, including the famous BBC Drama Village, Pinewood Studios and Wolf Studios Wales. A strong relationship already exists between Channel 4 and Sianel Pedwar Cymru—S4C—the fourth channel in Wales, and its facilities are not far down...

Kurdistan Region in Iraq — [Philip Davies in the Chair] (4 Jul 2017)

Tracy Brabin: ...creative links with the rest of the world. I was shown around a disused cigarette factory by a local producer who had some of the finance in place to create a film studio to rival Shepperton or Pinewood. Nearby Turkey has a vibrant film industry and I am sure the same could be true of Kurdistan. It is younger film makers such as Syrian-Kurdish director Lauand Omar, making films such as...

Queen’s Speech - Debate (6th Day) (Continued) (29 Jun 2017)

Lord Grade of Yarmouth: My Lords, I draw your Lordships’ attention to my long register of interests, most particularly my connection with Pinewood film studios and my position as a trustee of the Science Museum Group. I make no apologies for introducing a note of optimism into what has been a somewhat depressing debate with a list of worries and concerns, all of them legitimate and certainly well worth listening...

Scottish Parliament: Christmas Tree Industry (22 Dec 2016)

...much welcome the community buyout, which has been achieved by the local community trust working with Woodland Trust Scotland. The 2,500 acres of Loch Arkaig forest form one of only 38 Caledonian pinewood inventory sites in Scotland. These are vital ancient native pinewoods, so it is really good to see the local community coming together to work with other agencies on a long-term plan to...

Leasehold and Commonhold Reform: Christmas Adjournment (20 Dec 2016)

Sir David Amess: ...people involved on their wonderful work. I visited Angloco, which is doing marvellous work in delivering 45 new fire engines to Essex County Fire and Rescue. I also had the opportunity to visit Pinewood Studios. I am still waiting for a casting, but it is going to help with the alternative city of culture project. I also had good visits to the Philippines, where one of our colleagues took...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Health Service Provision: North Antrim (20 Sep 2016)

Robin Swann: With the Roddens and Pinewood, the Minister referred to the review of care homes that was started by her predecessor, and she is looking at the recommendations from that review. Is that a stand-alone review that is separate from the Bengoa report, or will it be incorporated into the Bengoa report?

Fourth Industrial Revolution (8 Sep 2016)

Alan Mak: constituency, is very well aware of. Its success has been predicated on protecting the work that it has produced. It is no surprise that its clients already include Rolls-Royce, Land Rover and Pinewood Studios. That said, larger businesses of the sort that my hon. Friend also mentioned can bring scale and expertise to innovative processes. Havant-based defence contractor Lockheed...

Online Abuse: Creative Industries (7 Jul 2016)

Chris White: ..., financial measures or general wider awareness. The hon. Lady mentioned various lists in her speech. Creative industries cover a number of iconic and diverse national treasures including the Tate, Pinewood Studios, the British Library, Adele—my favourite, rather than Beyoncé—and the BBC. It is also important to consider the wider economic benefits. The creative industries contributed...

Opposition Day — [18th Allotted Day] — Tax Avoidance and Multinational Companies (3 Feb 2016)

Mark Spencer: ...drug. The IP for that drug remains in this country, as do the profits from it. I was fortunate enough to go to the cinema to see “Spectre”, the latest James Bond movie, which was created in Pinewood Studios in the UK. Tax on the profits from those movies should be paid in this country, not all over the world. I gently say to the Opposition that, under their regime, no tax was claimed...

Energy Bill [Lords] (18 Jan 2016)

James Cartlidge: Wherstead, near the famous “Jimmy’s Farm” of BBC TV fame. I am pleased to say that it was soundly rejected by Babergh District Council, with great support from the affected communities of Pinewood, Belstead and Wherstead in the northern part of my constituency bordering Ipswich. Of course, those communities will very much welcome the measures in the Bill. On the subject of...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Private Members' Business: Waiting Lists Crisis (15 Sep 2015)

Robin Swann: ...the Health Minister who was able to step in and help save the Dal in our constituency. Does the Member agree that, without a Health Minister, the Dal, the Roddens care home in Ballymoney and the Pinewood care home in Ballymena are back under threat, because it is now over to the trust and civil servants to make those decisions and take them forward?

Northern Ireland Assembly: Adjournment: Dalriada Hospital (8 Sep 2015)

Paul Frew: ...That shows you that one error impacts on another, and so on. It should not make the same mistake in the future. We are told that we have sufficient bed space in Ballymena and that we do not need Pinewood. When I write to the Minister or the trust on behalf of constituents who need a bed in the Ballymena area, they are given a list of beds, but not one of them is in Ballymena. That is...

Cardiff City Deal (6 Jul 2015)

Stephen Doughty: ...creative industries? Will he join me in welcoming the work that has been done by Cardiff city council and by the Welsh Labour Government to encourage the creative industries, particularly the new Pinewood Studio Wales, the BBC Drama Village and many other facilities? That is building a real hub of expertise and creativity, which are being exported to the world.

Economy: Creative Industries — Motion to Take Note (18 Jun 2015)

Lord Clement-Jones: ...China, and the film co-production treaty with China that the BFI has led. I was delighted to see that Amanda Nevill was awarded a CBE in the Birthday Honours List for all her work with the BFI, and Pinewood is not only investing in the UK but also entering into joint ventures with major Chinese companies, which is terrific. Education is one of the themes that came through very powerfully...

Northern Ireland Assembly: Committee Business: Disability Action and Community Transport Budget Reductions (8 Jun 2015)

Robin Swann: ...' budgets; the Alliance Party and the removal of support from NIACRO and the Pathways to Success education maintenance allowance (EMA); the DUP and the closure of care homes such as the Roddens, Pinewood and a number across Northern Ireland — and we could point and wag our fingers at each other. The Members in the corner, who are not Executive members, could say to get out of the...

Deregulation Bill — Commons Amendments (16 Mar 2015)

Lord Grade of Yarmouth: My Lords, first, I draw attention to my interests in this matter as a former chairman of the BBC Board of Governors, the chairman of Pinewood Studios, an occasional—far too occasional—supplier of services to the BBC, and any other interests in the register. It has been a very good experience putting this matter to rights, and I offer my congratulations to the noble Baroness, Lady Howe....

Business of the House: Welsh Affairs (5 Mar 2015)

Owen Smith: ...What certainly does not have the ring of truth are some of the other claims that the Prime Minister has been making on behalf of the Tories. He claimed this week that it was the Tories who brought Pinewood studios to Wales, despite the fact that the UK Government had nothing to do with it—
