Darren Jones Labour, Bristol North West

Thank you, Mr Hanson. It is a pleasure to serve under your chairmanship on my first Bill Committee.

Mike Wood: Will my right hon. Friend support any of the home nations who choose to display a poppy next week to remember all those from every part of the world who sacrificed so much? Will she also pass on to FIFA the anger that there is in this House and among our constituents?


Karen Bradley The Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport

Mike Wood: Commonwealth Games athletes from all the nations of the United Kingdom train at the Judo Centre of Excellence in the Black Country. Does my hon. Friend agree that a Commonwealth Games in Wales would benefit the whole United Kingdom?


Craig Williams Conservative, Cardiff North

Mike Wood: The success in attracting the “Star Wars” trilogy to the UK underlines the terrific talent available in our creative industries as well as the incredible variety of filming locations. What assessment has my right hon. Friend made of the impact of tax credits on the film and other creative industries?
