ISM reacts to election: 'Creative industries are the future in this uncertain world'

With the 2017 General Election result announced, businesses, organisations and the public have begun to air their views about what a hung parliament could mean for the country and the industries they work in.

The Incorporated Society of Musicians (ISM) has sent MI Pro its official statement regarding the outcome of the election.

Deborah Annetts, chief executive of the ISM, said: “The results of the General Election poses a situation more complex than could have ever been predicted. However, the priorities set out in the ISM’s manifesto for musicians remain the same.
