Reacting to the results of the 2015 General Election, UK Music Chief Executive Jo Dipple commented:

“After five years of leading a coalition government, the Conservatives have now secured an overall majority, returning David Cameron back to Number 10 as Prime Minister. We look forward to working with the next Government and Parliament to support the UK music industry across the core areas set outby our manifesto for 2015, which identified a strong copyright framework, access to finance and fiscal incentives, skills pipeline, international growth strategy and better regulation based on good evidence as the five headline areas which require specific focus in order to sustain its £3.8 billion contribution to the UK economy.“

UK Music is the umbrella organisation which represents the collective interests of the UK’s commercial music industry – from artists, musicians, songwriters and composers, to record labels, music managers, music publishers, studio producers and music licensing organisations. The members of UK Music are: AIM, BASCA, BPI, FAC, MMF, MPA, MPG, MU, PPL, PRS for Music and the Live Music Group.
