Lords committee wants tax breaks for children's TV

By Katherine Rushton for Broadcast:
The campaign for tax credits for children’s programming has received a shot in the arm after a House of Lords select committee called for film tax credits to be extended to kids TV.

The culture select committee, led by Lord Fowler, called for the 18% tax relief for UK films to be applied to all children’s and animated television productions on a pilot basis. If successful, it could be extended to other hard-pressed genres like regional news and documentaries.
You can read the full report on the Parliament website - the tax credits recommendation comes in Chapter 6:
We recommend the extension of the film tax credit, on a pilot basis, to children's programmes and animation productions made for television. This pilot, if successful, might be extended to other genres.
