HC Deb 06 February 1968 vol 758 cc91-2W
Mr. Elystan Morgan

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what was the approximate percentage of children in Wales during 1967 who, being

of population spent by his Department upon the activities of the Arts Council in Wales in 1967; and what was the corresponding average for England in the same year.

Miss Jennie Lee

The 1967–68 grant to the Welsh Arts Council represents an average expenditure of 3s. 2d. per head. The corresponding figure for England is 2s. 7d.

In the course of the year the Arts Council will make capital grants of£300,000 for specific projects in England and Wales. These have not been taken into account but will not materially affect the averages.
