Tax breaks hopes fade

The culture minister, Ed Vaizey, has claimed his department will resist calls for game tax breaks in what he calls a “three or four year hiatus”.

That would suggest the Coalition Government won’t promise state support for the British games industry until the next election looms.

The Conservative Party, of which Vaizey was previously a shadow minister, promised “unequivocally” to introduce game tax breaks “in our first budget”.

The party abolished its plan after it was elected.
