Jeremy Hunt Defends Closure of UK Film Council

Jeremy Hunt, the culture secretary responsbile for axing the UK Film Council, has responded to his critics in an article in the Observer.  A good opportunity to demonstrate that this was not an ideologically-driven slash-and-burn policy rushed out before any serious consideration of a replacment system could take place, you might think.  So did Hunt:

A) Reassure the British film industry that solid plans are in place to replace the UKFC?

B) Offer meaningless platitudes such as "we must step up our ambitions and make the UK the best country for nurturing and promoting its homegrown creative talent"?
