The Liberal Democrats said today that they supported the introduction of a Games Tax Relief and wanted to see it introduced as soon as possible.
Don Foster, Liberal Democrat Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, said in a statement to TIGA:
“Liberal Democrats support the introduction of a Games Tax Relief. Following consultation on the details, we would implement the Relief as soon as possible.”
Dr Richard Wilson, CEO of TIGA, said:
â€œTIGA welcomes the Liberal Democratsâ€™ commitment to support Games Tax Relief and to enact this tax measure as quickly as possible. There is a growing cross party consensus that Games Tax Relief is good for the UK development sector, good for the UK games industry, and good for the UK economy.â€
