HC Deb 23 April 1998 vol 310 c691W
Mr. Barry Jones

To ask the Secretary of State for Wales in what ways and by what amounts he has assisted the film industry in Wales. [39430]

Mr. Ron Davies

The Welsh Office does not provide direct support for the film industry but Sgrin, the new Media Agency for Wales which replaced the Wales Film Council and Screen Wales, receives a large part of its core funding from the Arts Council of Wales, Cardiff Bay Development Corporation and the Welsh Development Agency. The Arts Council has also awarded £2.2 million of Lottery money to 21 film projects in Wales.
