§ Mr. Brotherton
asked the Secretary of State for the Environment if he has an estimate of the amount of money spent by each local authority on support for the arts.
§ Miss Margaret Jackson
I have been asked to reply.
Information about expenditure by each local authority is not available. A special survey mounted by the Arts Council of Great Britain in respect of 1972–73 concluded that local authority expenditure in England totalled between £14.7 million and £15.7 million.
