HC Deb 21 January 1980 vol 977 c7W
30. Mr. Edward Lyons

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster what measures he proposes to take to spread appreciation of the arts among the young.

Mr. Macfarlane

The Arts Council, for which my right hon. Friend is responsible, is charged with the duty of promoting the arts and making them accessible to the public at large, including young people. Many companies supported by the Arts Council are encouraged to include in their activities programmes which are directed particularly to young people; for example, Theatre-In-Education, Dance-In-Education, Writers-In-Schools and Music-In-Schools.
