HC Deb 24 March 1980 vol 981 cc393-4W
Mr. Faulds

asked the Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster if he will encourage private and industrial patronage for the arts to types of art activities, such as community arts, which do not receive either private or commercial patronage.

Mr. St. John-Stevas

I shall continue to encourage patronage and sponsorship of all branches of the arts, including community arts. Some sponsorship is already taking place in this area, but there is certainly scope for more, particularly in the regions.
