§ 67. Sir Knox Cunningham
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science when he will reach a decision on the recommendation by the Arts Council that the present subsidy of £93,000 shall be increased in the present year to a subsidy of £250,000 from public funds to be paid to the Royal Shakespeare Company; and if he will give an assurance that consideration has been given to the 108W Government's policy to refrain from increases in expenditure during the period of severe restraint.
§ Miss Jennie Lee
I have received no such recommendation. The grant to be made is for the Arts Council to determine.
