HC Deb 17 February 1971 vol 811 c452W
38. Mr. Dodds-Parker

asked the Secretary of State for the Environment which local authorities have taken advantage of Section 132(A) of the Local Government Act, 1968, to provide funds for the provision of theatrical entertainment, and to what extent.

Mr. Graham Page

I hear of local authorities' activities in this field only if they involve loan sanction. No central records are kept of council's expenditure on entertainments; but the report of a survey published last October by the Institute of Municipal Entertainment has been placed in the Library.
