§ Mr. Cormack
asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science whether 250W he will give a detailed statement on how his proposed cuts in public expenditure will affect the arts budget.
§ Mr. Mulley
Two million pounds will be saved on planned expenditure for 1977–78. About half of this will be found from capital expenditure for housing the arts and for the accommodation of the national museums and galleries. The remainder will be found from current expenditure and my noble Friend and I will decide on the details when I have considered the proposals for the 1977–78 estimates.
