Responding to the Budget in the House of Commons - 26/03/12


Today I responded to the Budget in the House of Commons.  This was a ‘Titanic’ Budget from the Tory-Lib Dem Government - the rich get a life boat and the rest sink or swim. 




The Budget was a chance for the Tory-Lib Dem government to come up with a budget for jobs and growth but they failed.   As Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, my challenge focused on the Government’s failure to outline a plan for jobs and growth in the creative economy.   You can read my speech here:
