MPs quizzed on videogames this month

UK's big three laying out future plans.

Update: Embarassingly, this has turned out not to be an episode of TV show Question Time but an event using a similar title as a hook. Sorry for the confusion. Am a plonker.

Altered story: The UK's leading political parties will be questioned later this month on their party's videogame plans, should they be elected to power.

An invite sent out be ELSPA set the date as 29th March. The Telegraph's Matt Warman will chair.

Guests will be MPs Ed Vaizey (Conservative), Tom Watson (Labour) and Don Foster (Liberal Democrats). Vaizey has demanded more support for the UK games industry in the past and Tom Watson's pro-videogame stance was loud and clear last December. Don Foster, too, believes creating games to be a crucial part of the UK economy.

There's an entry fee of £10, and the event will take place in Piccadilly, London.
