Ealing Southall Labour MP Virendra Sharma MP said:
''I welcome the return of Parliament’s most-hotly contested competitions, and would urge all local musicians and film-makers to enter Rock the House and Film the House. This is an excellent opportunity for Ealing, to celebrate our local talent and, as all nominations are judged by industry experts, there is no finer chance for our musicians and film-makers to gain exposure.''
Member of the Culture, Media and Sport Select Committee and Chairman of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Music, Nigel Adams MP (Selby & Ainsty) and Liberal Democrat Lords’ Spokesperson for The Creative Industries, Lord Tim Clement-Jones are to head up Rock the House & Film the House for 2015-2016 in Parliament.
Rock legend and actor, Alice Cooper said:
''Rock the House is a great project which celebrates the fantastic diversity of the British music scene and gives musicians a vehicle through which to hold their legislators accountable about protecting the music industry’s intellectual property.”
Former Intellectual Property Minister Lord Younger said:
"Rock the House has once again been a genuine success this year, engaging a unique combination of politicians, young people and consumers alike with the message of respect for IP. I am committed to making sure the copyright system that underpins the UK’s outstanding music industry is understood and respected.”
Best of luck!
