Thangam Debbonaire MP Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport
Thangam has been the Shadow Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport, since September 2023.
She believes that culture, media, and sport give us so much joy and a feeling of togetherness. They inform us of what is happening around us playing an important role in our great democratic tradition, one which she is proud to be a part of. They also make a massive contribution to the taxes which fund our public services.
Under the next Labour government, Thangam sees it as her role to value the contributions made by artists to society and the economy. She looks forward to supporting organisations in the face of evolving consumer preferences and the transition to net zero. Most of all, she seek to leverage our world-beating cultural, sports and tourism sectors to grow the UK’s economy, creating more jobs and opportunities across the country.
