HC Deb 01 July 1965 vol 715 c112W
40. Mr. William Hannan

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science if, when considering the Goodman Report, he will take into account the needs of the principal orchestras and other organisations outside London, and in particular the Scottish National Orchestra and Scottish opera.

Miss Jennie Lee

The specific recommendations in the Report refer only to the four major London orchestras. In considering the Report, I am taking account of what the Committee and the Arts Council have said about the bearing of the recommendations on orchestras outside London.
