UK Coalition Missing A Trick Over Games Investment Claims Dundee MSP

Dundee City West MSP Joe FitzPatrick today responded to a reply he has received from the Treasury which shows that the UK Coalition's main plan to stimulate industry including computer games industry is based almost exclusively on lowering the rate of corporation tax.

Joe FitzPatrick said: "It plans to have the main rate reduced to 23% by 2014, which it claims will be the lowest rate in the G7 and will therefore, it claims, keep the UK internationally competitive for business.
