Speaking to the Digital, Culture, Media and Sport Committee, Dowden revealed that he has spoken to every EU member state about the issue of Creative Touring within the EU Post Brexit, since the new rules came in back in January, and said he understood that “some paid touring activities” will be possible in 17 of the 27 EU countries.
