London, United Kingdom, 4th May - With polling day fast approaching, the Entertainment and Leisure Software Publishers Association (ELSPA) today called on the Conservative Party to release their mini manifesto for creative industries and signal their support for the tax breaks announced last month and thus their support for the UK videogames industry.
ELSPA Director General, Michael Rawlinson said, “We urge the Conservatives to publish their mini manifesto on creative industries before May 6th. The Conservative Party has spoken on numerous occasions of their commitment towards the videogames industry and creative industries in general, and our importance in helping to provide a more balanced UK economy.
We therefore call on the Party to officially publish their intentions for the games industry and the creative sector as a whole. There are only 2 days left until polling day. It is essential that the Conservatives let the many millions of voters who work in the games business, enjoy our products and benefit from the positive economic and cultural impact we provide, their commitment to our industry.”
