UK industry tax breaks not off says Tory MP
The chairman of the select committee for the Culture Department of the British government, John Whittingdale has suggested that games industry tax breaks are still on the cards.
Whittingdale told Develop Online that tax breaks for the games industry were "not off the cards."
He said: "There is concern, rightly from the government, that for tax breaks to be initiated they have to be properly focused."
"We've had experience in the past," Whittingdale added, "with the film industrys tax breaks, that if these measures are not tightly drawn they can be abused. But I dont think you should accept that tax breaks are off the table."
