07:09:2022: UK Music Chief Executive Jamie Njoku-Goodwin welcomed new Culture Secretary Michelle Donelan to her role and called on her to “support and champion” the music industry.
Jamie Njoku-Goodwin said:
“We welcome Michelle Donelan to her new role as Culture Secretary and look forward to working with her closely to grow our world-leading music industry.
“Following the Prime Minister’s comments about how we need tax cuts to stimulate the economy, we will continue to press the case for fiscal incentives to increase investment, support for UK exports and a significant cut in VAT to help boost jobs and growth in our sector. We also urgently need action from Government on the energy crisis, which is crippling businesses across our sector.
“The UK music industry contributes billions to the economy, boosts our global reputation and brings joy to millions of people across the country – we are exactly the sort of growth industry that Government should be supporting and championing.”
