Petition Action

Replace Oliver Dowden as Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media & Sport

Petition Details

We demand:
- New cabinet leadership.
- New avenues for industry-feedback on policies.
- New avenues for information to prepare for future industry disruption caused by Covid-19, as well as the transition from EU membership.
- Greater support in addressing the aforementioned issues.

Additional Information

The UK’s world-leading music and nightlife industry has never been closer to ruin - with the peril created by Brexit and the new tier-5 visa stipulations posing the greatest existential threat to the pre Covid-19 industry-space to date. Now with six+ months of lockdown measures, little to no cash-flow, a drought of useful information and support from the government, and new policy uncertainties - as it stands the industry as we know it has little to no chance of surviving to next summer.

This petition was rejected

The Government e-Petitions Team gave the following reason:
