§ Mr. O'Halloran
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will take steps to provide immediate financial support to St. George's theatre, Islington, in order to avert its threatened closure.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
Government support for drama is provided through the Arts Council, which has made a contribution to the St. George's theatre appeal. Apart from this, my noble friend Lord Mowbray and Stourton has had discussions with the theatre on the subject of further commercial sponsorship.
