Lord McIntosh of Haringey

My honourable friend the Minister for Tourism, Film and Broadcasting has written to the main film and broadcasting organisations, including those representing employees and independents, to seek their views on the issues raised in the Women in Film and Television survey on working conditions in film and television. Once she has their responses, she will have further discussion with the Minister for Women and WiTF on how to progress matters.
