Warner Bros expansion help keep UK 'on cutting edge'

For years the UK has been at the cutting edge of the creative industries - and we want that to be the case for decades to come. This comes back to two things - and the two things that I see being as the most important in my job.

One: promoting our culture. Music, film and television help inspire young kids and bring our country together - so I will always back those industries. And two: our long-term economic plan.
