The UK’s PSB broadcasters call on Government to work with them to support freelancers

The UK’s public service broadcasters (BBC, ITV, Channel 4, Channel 5, S4C) have today come together to ask the Government to work with them to support freelancers working in the broadcasting industry during this unprecedented period.

In a joint letter to the Chancellor signed by all the PSB, the broadcasters highlight the value of freelancers to the success of the UK’s Creative Industries and urge the Government “to provide a package of support

to freelancers”. The PSB conclude by offering to work with the Government to “help you identify a package of measures that would provide for a level of income protection and access to statutory sick pay for the freelance community in our industry as a matter of urgency”.

The letter has been sent today and signed by Tony Hall, Carolyn McCall, Alex Mahon, Maria Kyriacou and Owen Evans.
