HC Deb 18 June 1979 vol 968 c365W
25. Mrs. Renée Short

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what proposals he has to enable the Arts Council to continue and extend its support for the performing arts.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

I take a close interest in all aspects of the Arts Council's activities, including its support for the performing arts, but it is for the Arts Council itself to determine its priorities for particular areas of activity.
