HC Deb 29 March 1979 vol 965 c299W
Mr. Reid

asked the Secretary of State for Education and Science what was the value of grants and services in 1978 provided by the British Film Institute on encouragement of film and the cinematograpic arts in Scotland.

Mr. Oakes

Grants to Scottish organisations from the British Film Institute in the financial year 1978–79 totalled £60,000. Grants and services are also provided by the Scottish Film Council which is grant-aided indirectly by the Scottish Education Department. At the request of that council the institute also provides advice and services to bodies in Scotland, but the cost to the institute is not identifiable.
