§ Mr. Churchill
asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will list the sums made available by the Arts Council to Greater London and Greater Manchester, respectively, for each of the past five years; and if he will indicate the expenditure that this represents per 1,000 of population.
§ Mr. St. John-Stevas
The Arts Council holds detailed statistics on its clients'activities from which it may be possible to derive the figures which my hon. Friend seeks. As the assembly of these will take a considerable time, I have asked the Arts Council to write to him direct to provide the relevant information.
