17. Mr. Blenkinsop

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science how many projects for the establishment of regional and local arts centres have been received from local authorities during the last 12 months.

The Arts Council have since April 1965 received 64 applications for grants towards the cost of building and extending arts centres. This figure represents applications received direct from local authorities, and also other applications in many of which local authorities are involved.
