Treasury Minister wants to continue media industry support

Thu, 15 Dec 2016

The Treasury Minister will look at ways to use the Media Development Fund to support creative industries in the future.

The agreement between the Manx Government and Pinewood ends next year, leaving the fund available for use in other ways.

However, Alfred Cannan insists there will be ongoing support for media, film and television.

The Minister says he'll need to look at ways to support this sector of the economy while also helping mainstream businesses with the funds.

Mr Cannan was speaking following a question from Ramsey MHK Lawrie Hooper at this month's sitting of Tynwald.
