I refer the hon. Member to the written statement made yesterday, 11 September 2013, Hansard, columns 49-50WS.

The Government set out its approach to industrial strategy in September 2012. In the last 12 months we have published strategies in eleven sectors where our economic analysis demonstrates we can have the biggest impact. A number of these strategies focus on advanced manufacturing. The Information Economy Strategy covers the digital sector. Beyond this our approach is about supporting all sectors through a spectrum of support. This includes assistance to the creative sector through the work of Creative Industries Council.
