§ 22. Miss Harvie Anderson
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science who is now Chairman of the Arts Council Inquiry on the Training of Arts Administrators; and when the report of that inquiry will be published.
§ Miss Jennie Lee
The Arts Council has not yet appointed a successor to Sir Leslie Scarman, who gave up the chairmanship of the inquiry following his resignation from the council. It will be for the council to decide whether or not to publish the report of the inquiry.
§ Miss Harvie Anderson
In view of the great importance to the regions, may I ask the right hon. Lady to urge that a new chairman be appointed without further delay to expedite the final report?
