Creative industries in Scotland inquiry

Inquiry

Government response

The Scottish Affairs Committee has called on the UK and Scottish governments to work together to better understand and support creative industries in Scotland, or risk losing out on a multi-billion dollar industry. The report identifies a critical need for government to recognise the creative industries as important economic contributors in their own right and develop policies designed specifically to support them.
