Don Foster and Ed Vaizey both â??dejectedâ?? after months of pre-election promises

Coalition MPs write to reverse tax break ruling

Two MPs most sympathetic with the needs of the game industry are said had been deflated by Treasury plans to scrap game development tax breaks.

And Develop has been told from an involved political source that Chancellor George Osborne is being sent a letter by the coalition party members to reconsider.

Conservative MP Ed Vaizey – now a culture minister – and Liberal Democrat Don Foster have both written to the Treasury, Develop is told, asking the department to reassess its position.

Today the Treasury told Develop that backing one industry over any other would not have been the fairest way to protect British business.
