HC Deb 05 February 1974 vol 868 cc287-8W
Mr. Boscawen

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what is the annual cost to public funds of the British Crafts Centre.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

The British Crafts Centre is an independent body to which grant is paid on the advice of the Crafts Advisory Committee. The estimated grant for 1973–74 is £60,000, of which £32,000 is attributed to non-recurring capital expenditure on premises occupied by the centre.
