HC Deb 09 August 1972 vol 842 c436W
34. Mr. Judd

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether she will publish in the OFFICIAL REPORT details of per capita expenditure on the arts by each of the 20 largest cities and county boroughs of England and Wales outside London.

Mr. van Straubenzee

This information is not available without special inquiry of the authorities. (Local authority accounts do not identify expenditure on the arts as such, which in any event is not a closely defined term.)
