§ 29. Sir R. Nugent
asked the Chancellor of the Exchequer whether he will issue a revised version of the 1958 publication on Government support for the arts.
§ Mr. Boyd-Carpenter
Yes. A booklet called "Government and the Arts, 1958–1964" will be published later this week. It gives an account of developments since the booklet "Government and the Arts in Britain" was published in 1958. It shows, among other things, that total Government expenditure on the arts has risen from £6 million in 1958–59 to an estimated £13½ million in 1964–65.
