+ - British Government to Support "Cultural" G->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The proposal is part of the Digital Britain report outlined by Culture Secretary Ben Bradshaw in Parliament.

In film a system of cultural tax credits has long helped to sustain a wide range of films that speak to a British narrative, rather than the cultural perspectives of Hollywood or multinational collaborations. Other countries such as Canada, for similar reasons, extend the model of cultural tax relief beyond the film industry to the interactive and online worlds. CGI, electronic games and simulation also have a significant role in Britain's digital content ecology and in our international competitiveness. Each of these has the same capability as the more traditional sectors, such as film, to engage us and reflect our cultural particularism. They may in future have a cultural relevance to rival that of film. The Government has therefore committed to work with the industry to collect and review the evidence for a tax relief to promote the sustainable production for online or physical sale of culturally British video games.

The above quote is from page 129, point 101, of the lengthy report. Can a Monty Python MMO be far behind?"
